Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to collecting all of the materials necessary in a convenient, easily accessible storage container, such as a backpack, to safely inspect and perform electrical installations.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • In the 2004 edition of the “Standard For Electrical Safety In The Workplace”, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has outlined several, deficiencies found in most workplaces. The NFPA has identified a need for the average employer to protect its employees in the installation and maintenance of high voltage electrical circuits and during all aspects of design, installation, modification and construction of an electrical installation or system.
  • There has been a long felt need to meet the requirements for safety-related electrical work practices and maintenance of an electrical system. These requirements are considered critical to the safety of the workforce handling high voltage systems.
  • In an effort to address these needs, the NFPA has set forth guidelines to address these issues. One of the paramount features stressed by the NFPA is to emphasize safe work practices.
  • One important goal identified is the protection of employees from electrical hazards. The hazards are identified by the NFPA as including live electrical parts operating at 50 volts or more and the efforts to protect employees who might be exposed to the electrical hazards involved. These work practices were intended to protect each employee from arc flash and from contact with live parts operating at 50 volts or more and the potential direct contact with any part of the body or indirectly through some other conductive object.
  • The hazards involved in addressing a critical electrical installation are extreme. These needs have previously been addressed by the use of metal tool boxes and employees dressed in synthetic material street clothing. Following these practices have exposed employees to serious risk of severe injury or death.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to collect all of the products needed for working near or on energized circuits in a single transportable container which can be carried from various vantage points and provide easy, immediate access to insulated tools, electrical test equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE) and clothing. This collection of disparate tools puts all the necessary items that are needed to work on energized equipment in one location.
  • This object is accomplished by use of a light weight, waterproof backpack having a plurality of compartments or pouches segregated to carry different items in different locations based upon priorities of access.
  • For example, a top pouch stores insulating gloves which may be the first items required to service an active installation. The top pouch includes a double zipper design for fast removal of electrician's high voltage rubber gloves from either end of the top pouch.
  • A center, side pouch stores hand tools in a tool sleeve. The hand tools include composite screw drivers, composite knives, composite nut drivers and other composite tools. These tools are made according to the advantageous design of U.S. Pat. No. 5,359,911, hereby incorporated in its entirety by reference.
  • As described in this patent, a limited amount of metal is used at only one of the tool. The remainder of the tool is made of a composite, non-conductive material which is strong and light in weight. Accordingly, these disparate tools are easily accessed from the center, side pouch by release of a hook and loop fastener, with the tool sleeve being removable to access all of the tools located on both sides of the tool sleeve.
  • A central main compartment includes an arc flash face shield and helmet and hazard risk (category 2), fire rated clothing such as coveralls, parka, lab coat, etc.
  • The two side pouches are used to store voltage test gear and/or a small or “mini” laptop computer. A hook and loop fastener closure provides easy and quick access to each of the two side pouches.
  • The backpack includes a central lift loop for easy grasping by one hand. The backpack also includes two shoulder straps for carrying by an electrician. Each shoulder strap includes a quick release buckle if, for example, the backpack needs to be secured to a ladder at an elevated position.
  • The backpack is made of rugged CORDURA fabric using 1000 denier material. The fabric includes a waterproof treatment and is also static resistant. The static resistance is created by application of an antistatic spray such as is available from Camie-Campbell of St. Louis, Mo.
  • Accordingly, it is another object of the present invention to provide a container in a backpack form having a plurality of compartments for easy immediate access to disparate tools collected for safely addressing an electrical installation.
  • It is another object of the present invention to provide a container in a backpack form having a plurality of compartments for easy immediate access to disparate tools collected for safely addressing an electrical installation with an elevated uppermost compartment containing electrician's high voltage rubber gloves so as to accommodate immediate insulated access to the most basic of electrical protection equipment.
  • It is another object of the present invention to provide a container in a backpack form having a plurality of compartments for easy immediate access to disparate tools collected for safely addressing an electrical installation having a central storage compartment for an arc face shield and helmet and fire rated clothing.
  • It is still yet another object of the present invention to provide a container in a backpack form having a plurality of compartments for easy immediate access to disparate tools collected for safely addressing an electrical installation having a central storage compartment for an arc face shield and helmet and fire rated clothing with a center, side compartment having a removable tool sleeve holding a plurality of composite material, electrically insulated tools.
  • It is still yet another object of the present invention to provide a container in a backpack form having a plurality of compartments for easy immediate access to disparate tools collected for safely addressing an electrical installation having a central storage compartment for an arc face shield and helmet and fire rated clothing with a center, side compartment having a removable tool sleeve holding a plurality of composite material, electrically insulated tools with side pouches for providing immediate access to auxiliary electrical testing equipment.
