Now there is one thing that SHOULD be banned. Those neon screwdrivers, they are highly dangerous and frowned upon at 240V but at 18 kV they are suicidal.But I once stopped an "electrical engineer" from poking a neon voltage detecting screwdriver towards a live 18kV busbar...
Get anywhere near that busbar with one of those and you are dead, or rather what's left of you is, you don't have to actually touch it. Good job you stopped him ! He should have known better but we all have moments of stupidity.
