About the Authors:

Ray A. Jones, PE

Industrial electrical safety has become a passion for Ray and Jane Jones. As a professional electrical engineer, Ray came to understand that electrical safety processes associate with people are more important than those associate with installations and equipment. He and Jane spend their time communicating that message. A User's Guide to Electrical PPE is their fifth book on electrical safety.

Ray has served on several national consensus committees and panels and chairs the NFPA 70E Technical Committee. He has authored many published articles in industry journals and has presented numerous papers and tutorials at technical conferences, all focused on electrical safety issues. Ray retired from DuPont after 35 years of service working with industrial electrical systems and installations.

Jane G. Jones is an editor, author, and technical writer. She has authored and edited numerous technical journal articles and has been the technical writer for various codes and standards associated with electrical safety
