Do Square D Heavy Duty Single Throw Safety Switches have a color-coded handle to indicate the ON or OFF position of the switch??

Square D Heavy Duty Safety Switches (single throw only) feature a color-coded handle to indicate the ON or OFF position of the switch. When the switch is ON, and the switch is viewed from the front, the handle shows mostly ?red?. When the switch is OFF, the handle shows mostly ?black?. NOTE: This indication should NOT be used to positively identify the position of the blades in the switch. For positive identification, refer to the OSHA Lock-out/Tag-out procedure when verifying whether a switch is on or off and also NFPA 70.
