Electric Power Standards Part Two will present §29 CFR 1910.269 Electric Power Generation, Transmission, and Distribution in a simple and practical way, making it easy to interpret and apply. This course will explain the performance requirements and answer frequently asked questions about key parts of the standard. As part of the course, each participant will receive a copy of the Subpart V final rule along with our OSHA Electric Power Standards Matrix that highlights key sections; correlates general industry and construction requirements; explains key definitions; and outlines important changes and requirements. Anyone with a role in safety, leadership, or operations in the electric utility industry should attend.
The primary goal of Electric Power Standards is for participants to understand how 1910.269 should be reflected in how work is planned and executed at their organizations. To successfully complete the course and accomplish its primary goal, participants must understand:
- The intent of the standard, who it applies to, and when it applies;
- Its relationship to other performance and consensus standards; and
- Specific requirements including substations and special conditions; enclosed spaces; overhead and underground lines; live line tools; electrical protective equipment; line clearance tree trimming; and testing and test facilities.
