shock preventionTo provide assistance to employers in complying with OSHA's Subpart S Electrical Standards for General Industry electrical installation standard, the agency has developed the new "Subpart S eTool" (eTools are "stand-alone," interactive, Web-based training tools on occupational safety and health topics).

The eTool shows employers all of the Subpart S installation requirements that apply based on the time period in which an installation was built or last modified. Users select a requirement category and date range from a matrix, and the eTool displays the requirements applicable to an installation built or modified during that range.

The standard, which became effective in 2007, is intended to reduce the risk of injury and death caused by unsafe electrical installations.
