On July 10th, 2014, OSHA issued a revision on the final rule Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution; Electrical Protective Equipment. This policy delays the enforcement of most new requirements for employers who are complying with the General Industry rule. The new rule revises the 40 year old standard to improve safety for these workers working with electric power generation and distribution. This new revision of the final rule will save up to 20 lives per year and prevent 118 serious injuries per year. Also included in this new rule is the new and/or revised requirements for fall protection, minimum distance requirements and arc-flash protection.
