OSHA FACT SHEET


Working Safely with Electricity

Power Lines

Overhead and buried power lines are especially hazardous because they carry extremely high voltage. Fatal electrocution is the main risk. but burns and falls are also hazards.
* Look for overhead power lines and buried power line indicators.
* Stay at leaast 10 feet away from overhead power lines and assume they are energized.
* De-energise and ground lines when working near them.
* Use non-conductive wood or fiberglass ladders when working near power lines. 

Extension Cords

Normal wear on cords can loosen or expose wires. Cords that are not 3-wire type, not designed for hard-usage, or that have been modified, increase your risk of contacting electrical current.
* Use only equipment that is approved to meet OSHA standards.
* Do not modify cords or use them incorrectly.
* Use factory-assembled cord sets and only extension cords that are 3-wire type.
* Use only cords, connection devices, and fittings that are equipped with strain relief.
* Remove cords from receptacles by pulling on the plugs, not the cords.     Osha Fact 2
Equipment

Due to the dynamic, rugged nature of construction work, normal use of electrical equipment causes wear and tear that results in insulation breaks, short-circuits, and exposed wires. If there is no ground-fault protection, it can cause a ground-fault that sends current through the worker's body.
* Use ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) on all 120-volt, single-phase, 15- and 20-ampere receptacles, or have an assured equipment grounding conductor program(AEGCP).
* Use double-insulated tools and equipment distinctively marked.
* Visually inspect all electrical equipment before use. Remove from service any equipment with frayed cords, missing ground prongs, cracked tool casings, etc.
