    Approval of Oregon State Standard for Proximity to Overhead High Voltage Lines and Equipment

OSHA has approved the Oregon standard for Proximity to Overhead High Voltage Lines and Equipment. Oregon adopted the standard as part of its general industry electrical standard to provide additional protective requirements for general industry. There are no requirements in OSHA''s general industry electrical standards at 29 CFR part 1910 Subpart S which are equivalent to Oregon''s additional requirements. On 7/21/87, OSHA published a Federal Register notice (52 FR 27417) requesting public comment on whether the Oregon standard meets both the "at least as effective" criterion and the product clause test of the OSH Act. One response was received. The standard is approved by decision effective 6/1/91.
