An electrical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) program is required for work on energized electrical equipment in accordance with OSHA, NEC 2014 (110.16), and NFPA 70E. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires an employer to assess the workplace and identify hazards and select personal protective equipment that will protect the employee from the identified hazards (OSHA 1910.132 (d)(1)). An employer is also required to use safety signs and tags to warn employees about electrical hazards (OSHA 1910.335 (b)(1)). The primary regulations are in 29CFR 1910 Subparts I, and S. These can be broken down into three general areas – hazard identification and PPE selection, training, and proficiency.
Please contact us with any questions related to arc flash risk assessments (hazard analysis), NFPA 70E, IEEE1584, fault current and coordination analysis, electrical system condition assessment, or any electrical system design needs.
