Compliance with new regulations will prevent injuries, reduce equipment repair and minimize downtime
The electrical industry can breathe a sigh of relief starting this month as a new OSHA rule requiring utilities and many manufacturers to do arc flash calculations and provide arc flash mitigation equipment fully goes into effect.
OSHA’s Final Rule for Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution Standards (29 CFR 1910.269 and 1926 Subpart V), replaces out-of-date provisions that are inconsistent with current industry standards. All employers that operate or maintain electric power generation, transmission, or distribution lines or equipment are required to comply with the new rules, which provide updated, clear, and consistent safety standards.
