Abstract:

Electrical standards for safety-related work practices for general
industry. Includes requirements for work performed on or near
exposed energized and deenergized parts of electrical equipment; use
of electrical protective equipment; and the safe use of electric
equipment. Amendments are proposed to the general industry standards
which would: change existing regulations referring to the 1971
National Electrical Code so that they would refer instead to OSHA's
electrical standards; remove existing electrical work-practice
requirements from other parts of the general industry standards so
that all general electrical safety- related work practices would be
covered in the electrical safety standards; and remove an existing
provision relating to construction from the general industry
electrical safety standards. The general industry standards amended
are: 1910.26(c)(3)(viii) [removed]; 1910. 67(b)(4); 1910.68(b)(4)
