What OSHA Expects: The Electrical Safety Questions OSHA Will AskThis article, What OSHA Expects: The Electrical Safety Questions OSHA Will Ask During an Investigation by Kenneth Cybart appeared in yesterday's Occupational Hazards Magazine. This is how the article introduces itself:
"Wouldn’t it be nice to know exactly what OSHA is training its inspectors to look for during an inspection that includes electrical safety, including surprising new areas of emphasis based on national OSHA directives? This article covers some of the typical electrical safety questions that OSHA inspectors will ask during a field investigation, what they mean and how to be prepared and in compliance."
The article looks at 17 questions OSHA inspectors will ask, such as:
Is there a description of the circuit or equipment at the job location?
Is there a detailed job description of planned work?
Can you justify why equipment cannot be de-energized or the job deferred until the next scheduled outage?
Has a detailed work procedure been established?
You can read the complete article, including all 17 questions, on Occupational Hazards' web site.
