(A) Routine circuit switching, if the employer can demonstrate that conditions at the site allow the work to be performed safely;If the work does not fall under the activities listed in paragraph 1910.269(l)(1)(i) or if the work falls under that paragraph but is one of the exempted activities listed in paragraph 1910.269(l)(1)(ii), then there is no OSHA requirement to have two employees present. For work practices that require at least two employees, the standard does not specify where the second employee must be located during the performance of the work.
