ATSM International is accepting abstracts for papers for its symposium next October in Orlando, Florida.

Papers are invited for the Symposium on Electrical Protective Equipment for Workers, Oct. 29, 2020, at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld, in Florida. The symposium is sponsored by the ASTM International committee on electrical protective equipment for workers (F18) and will take place in conjunction with the October standards development meetings of the committee.

The symposium will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on current research in the electrical industry, including tools, materials, and equipment used for protection from electrical hazards. One outcome will be the identification of opportunities for standards revision or the development of new standards.

  • Testing evaluations and research related to personal protective equipment used by workers with exposure to electrical hazards,
  • Worker personal equipment,
  • Insulating cover-up equipment,
  • Tools and equipment,
