Opening the Buckets of a Motor Control Center During an Infrared Inspection
When opening the buckets of an Motor Control Center (MCC) during an Infrared inspection, always open the buckets starting at the top and working your way down to the bottom . When closing the bucket doors after the IR inspection always close starting the doors from the bottom and work your way to the top.
The reason you open from top to bottom and close from bottom to top is that if you accidentally drop the tool you are using to open and close the doors it will not fall into an open energized bucket.
