NFPA 70E: Why comply?An article in Plant Services magazine talks about why compliance with NFPA 70E is important. It also discusses the relationship between OSHA and NFPA 70E.
"NFPA 70E was originally developed at OSHA’s request to address electrical hazards in the workplace. OSHA bases its electrical safety requirements on the comprehensive information in NFPA 70E. Even though OSHA does not mandate compliance with NFPA 70E itself, it considers NFPA 70E to be an effective how-to manual for OSHA regulation compliance."
The article answers questions such as:
How does NFPA 70E complement OSHA regulations?
Can you avoid OSHA citations by complying with NFPA 70E?
What about OSHA-approved state plans?
