What are the governing regulations?
Cal/OSHA covers all private sector workplaces, state government, and local government workplaces in the state. Only employees of the federal government and offshore maritime workers are exempted from Cal/OSHA. These workers are covered under the federal OSHA plan.

Employers and individuals working with electricity should also be aware of the electrical safety requirements issued by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The NFPA publication 70E, "Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace," referred to as NFPA 70E, outlines work practices designed to protect workers from exposure to electrical hazards. This NFPA standard provides guidance for identifying hazards, assessing risks, choosing the correct protective equipment, and training employees. NFPA 70E can be a useful resource for procedures and practices necessary for ensuring employee safety.

Who must take this training?
Nearly every occupation exposes workers to the hazards of electrical energy. These hazards include electrical shock, electrocution, burns, and arc flash incidents. In many instances in which workers have suffered permanent injury or died due to electrical hazards, faulty installation, careless maintenance, or other preventable situations have been present. The Cal/OSHA Electrical Safety Orders mandate that California employers address such situations so that employees may work safely under all conditions.

Case Study: A team of workers was performing preventive maintenance on the electrical system of a railroad maintenance facility. One worker was cleaning an electrical cabinet with an aerosol cleaning fluid. Not knowing it was energized, he began spraying the fluid into the upper compartment of the cabinet. The spray provided a conductive path for the current into the can and across the worker's chest, causing an explosion. He was found with his clothes on fire and died within 24 hours.

Key Takeaways: Before doing any electrical work, ensure that all equipment and circuits have been de-energized, perform lock-out/tag-out procedures, and test the equipment and circuits to make sure they are de-energized. Never use aerosol spray cans around high-voltage equipment.
