Thanks for all the time and effort to prepare the Code; this is a complicated subject.
Article 90 ‚ÄúIntroduction‚Äù states that the purpose of the Code ‚Äúis the practical safeguarding of persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity‚Äù and ‚Äúis not intended as ‚Ä¶ an instruction manual for untrained persons‚Äù.
Article 250.1 indicates your awareness of presenting the Code in a ‚Äúmore user-friendly‚Äù format.
Suggestions for enhancement of the program:
1. Compile a list of technical terms in the Code.
Provide one ‚Äútext-only‚Äù definition for each term. (This would be the initial definition shown in the Handbook‚Äôs Definitions, which includes additional verbiage and pictures for some definitions.)
This will be a list of all technical terms, regardless of how many articles include the term. Most books have only one glossary.
Start with terms for residential buildings; they probably account for most potential lives to be saved.
(Where possible, use terms and definitions that are easily understood by the population, not ‚Äúlegalese‚Äù. Invent simpler, single-word terms to replace multi-word terms like ‚Äúservice disconnecting means‚Äù, which is almost a sentence. Imagine what the computer ‚Äúkeyboard‚Äù could have been called.)
2. Put this list of terms and definitions on a web page. Simple text-only, not rocket science html.
Provide a search tool so it‚Äôs easy to find either ‚ÄúIndividual branch circuit‚Äù or ‚Äúbranch circuit, individual‚Äù, or all terms that include the letters ‚Äúground‚Äù.
The web page should not decrease book sales; it could advertise various publications, encourage interest in safety programs and mistake-proof products, etc..
It should improve the safety and productivity of all electricians, including the DIY group.
