Abstract: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is planning to update the Subpart S-Electrical Standard and will rely heavily on the materials involved in the development of the 2000 Edition of the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA's) 70 E standard for Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces. This revision will provide the first update of Subpart S-Electrical since the standard was originally published in 1981. It will thus allow the latest technological developments to be considered; several of these state-of-the-art safety developments will be addressed by OSHA for the first time. The update of Subpart S-Electrical will also permit the completion of standards covering safety-related maintenance requirements and safety requirement for special equipment.
