(1)  Where the equipment grounding conductor is a separate conductor, verify that the conductor is
routed through the same conduit, raceway, etc., as the phase and neutral conductors.
(2)  Verify that the equipment grounding path back to the power panel is continuous and that any
insulating finishes in the grounding path have been removed.
(3)  Verify that the size of the equipment grounding conductor is at least as large as that listed in
Table l-21 for the overcurrent device serving the equipment.
(4)  Verify that the neutral is not connected to the chassis or frame of the equipment. This may be
verified visually or with an ohmmeter.
Isolation of neutral conductor. When it is possible to deenergize a facility, or a portion thereof,
g.
perform the following test:
(1)  With the electrical power removed disconnect the facility neutral from ground or in the case
of a portion of the facility (e.g., a power panel) the incoming neutral. See Figure 1-47.
