Abstract This report evaluates existing temporary and stationary protection appliances from the user's point of view considering the constraints of work near live parts. Further aspects are the technical and constructive possibilities in the state design of distribution and load devices; concerning especially low-voltage switchgears and distribution installations. The requirements from this work are presented and illustrated by some examples. They concern: instruction and training of personnel; constructive means which make the use of protection appliances practicable; design and construction of low-voltage installations.
