    niceic initial assessment tomorrow! woop woop

    Seek permission to isolate
    isolate, locked off with signage- keep key on you
    prove my gs38 approved voltage indicators on a known source (will use supply side of main switch?)
    test between L-N,L-E,N-E for voltage
    re-prove voltage indicator on known source
    precede with work with caution

    I do not want to leave any holes for the assessor to pick at- so a few thing I want advise on-

    1)OK to use main switch as my known source?

    2) I am just using a lighting circuit I have installed as my job...

    Turn off main switch before taking off cover?
    Take cover off only isolate rcbo for the light circuit- leaving all other circuits on? whilst doing my testing on my circuit? -what about walking away from fuse board to do my r1+r2 in another room ect?

    Any advise welcome

    cheers guys
