Series Description
This is the first in a series of four webinars designed to provide an overview of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) revised rules for electric generation, transmission and distribution. This series will provide an overview of the changes outlined in both §1910.269 and §1926 Subpart V, as well as how are these requirements are expected to impact utilities. 

Webinar Description

This webinar will cover:

  • Host Employer/Contractor Provisions (Information Transfer): Host employers (e.g., utilities) and contract employers must exchange information regarding known hazards, as well as the conditions, characteristics, design and operation of the host employer’s system.  Work rules and procedures must be coordinated between the host employer and contract employer, and must be designed to protect all employees.
  • Host employers must also provide employees with all known information relating to the determination of existing characteristics and conditions. Compliance date for these elements of the new rule was July 10, 2014, but OSHA has established a temporary enforcement policy for these rules until October 31, 2014.
  • General Training: There are several updates to general training standards. Training is to be determined based on hazard assessments and risk potential to the worker for the hazards involved. Qualified workers must be trained to recognize and control or avoid electrical hazards at the worksite.

Speaker
