Description: The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the
Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by
employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the Act or for
developing information regarding the causes and prevention of
occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The
information-collection requirements specified by the Electrical
Standards for Construction and General Industry alert employees to the
presence and types of electrical hazards in the workplace, thereby preventing
serious injury and death by electrocution. The information-collection requirements
in the standards involve the following: The employer using electrical equipment
that is marked by the manufacturer's name, trademark, or other descriptive
markings that identify the producer of the equipment, and marking the
equipment with the voltage, current, wattage, or other ratings
necessary; requiring each disconnecting means for motors and appliances
to be marked legibly to indicate its purpose, unless located and
arranged so the purpose is evident; requiring the entrances to rooms
and other guarded locations containing exposed live parts to be marked
with conspicuous warning signs forbidding unqualified persons from
entering; and, for construction employers only, establishing and
implementing the assured equipment grounding conductor program instead
of using ground-fault circuit interrupters.
