Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
Final Rule - Stay of Enforcement and correction - Electric power generation, transmission, and distribution; Electrical protective equipment [USA]
On 31 Jan. 1994, the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a new standard addressing the work practices to be used during the operation and maintenance of electric power generation, transmission and distribution facilities. In that document, the OSHA also revised the electrical protective equipment requirements contained in the General Industry Standards. This Notice stays the enforcement of some of the requirements contained in the electric power generation standard, corrects language in the preamble explaining the standard (particularly as it relates to the wearing of clothing for employees working on or near exposed energized parts) and corrects several errors in the standard.
