Description: Displaying the Minimum Safe Distance (Sec.
1910.126(g)(4))--This provision requires the employer to determine how
far away goods being electrostatically deteared should be separated
from electrodes or conductors. This distance is called the "safe
distance." This minimum distance must be displayed conspicuously on a
sign located near the equipment. OSHA has determined that where
electrostatic equipment is being used, the information has already been
ascertained and that the "safe distance" has been displayed on a sign
in a permanent manner.
