An Illustrated Guide to Electrical Safety
The sixth edition of An Illustrated Guide to Electrical Safety provides all the text and changes to 29 CFR 1910 Subpart S implemented by OSHA in 2007, including a new, easy-to-use, cross-reference to find new and renumbered sections. These changes have been documented and commented on to synchronize the requirements of OSHA to the 2011 National Electrical Code, as well as coordinating 29 CFR 1926 Subpart K requirements for construction. While OSHA did not revise the Safety-Related Work Practices section of Subpart S, the Illustrated Guide harmonizes the OSHA requirements with latest NFPA 70E – Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, 2012 Edition.
Over 130 illustrations are used to explain the revised OSHA requirements, and the updated analysis provides the reader with insights into how to implement OSHA requirements for a safer workplace, and even the history of some requirements. ISBN 978-1-885581-59-4.
