Safety Risks (CONT’D FROM PAGE 42)


70E (Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace) is the consensus standard for electrical safety in the workplace. OSHA uses it to establish electrical safety regulations. Thus, an electrical hazard analysis must be performed prior to employees working on or near exposed ener- gized electrical conductors and circuit parts operating at 50-volts or more. Make sure your plants are staying cur- rent with NFPA 70E’s changes and have performed audits, as appropriate, and according to the IEEE engineering standard (IEEE 1584-2018). This article in Electrical Safety in the Workplace, Update: Changes to NFPA 70E 2021 Edi- tion could help with grasping the changes and the scope of applying them to your plant.
