What OSHA Standards Address Electrical Safety?

OSHA standards cover many electrical hazards in many different industries. OSHA general industry electrical safety standards are published in Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 1910.302 through 1910.308 – Design Safety Standards for electrical System and 1910.331 through 1910.335 – Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices Standards.

OSHA’s electrical standards are based on the National Fire Protection Association Standards NFPA 70, National Electric Code, and NFPA 70E, Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces.

OSHA also has electrical safety standards for the construction industry, in 29 CFR 1926, Subpart K. OSHA’s standards for marine terminals, in 29 CFR 1917, and for long shoring, in 29 CFR 1918, reference the general industry electrical standards in Subpart S of 1910. The shipyard standards in 29 CFR 1915 cover limited electrical safety work practices in 29 CFR 1915.181.
