Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices

OSHA's Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices Standard, 29 CFR 1910.331-.335 was issued on August 6, 1990 and updated August 13, 2007 (see our comparison chart for specific changes). This standard, which pertains to all general industry, requires that employers:

  • Cover electrical safety-related work practices with employees who work  on, near, or with electrical circuits and equipment.  
  • Cover both qualified and unqualified persons.  
  • Cover premises wiring, wiring for connection to supply, other wiring,  and optical fiber cable.

Consulting Services

CTJ Safety Associates has extensive experience and expertise in helping firms comply with OSHA regulations. We routinely conduct OSHA compliance audits and training courses. Our instructors are authorized OSHA Outreach Instructors.

Our safety professionals will visit employer sites to review the standard (including the changes that became effective August 13, 2007) with staff and managers and survey the facility to determine compliance needs. Reports are prepared for management use.

Compliance Manual

We have developed a complete compliance manual covering all aspects of the standard including a written program, plans, procedures, forms, checklists, and more.

Training Courses

The training provisions of the standard require that the following people who are potentially exposed to electrical hazards be trained. These employees include:

  • Blue collar supervisors
  • Electrical and electronic engineers
  • Electrical and electronic assemblers
  • Electrical and electronic technicians
  • Electricians
  • Industrial machine operators
  • Material handling equipment operators
  • Mechanics and repairers
  • Painters
  • Riggers and roustabouts
  • Stationary engineers
  • Welders

The training session that OSHA requires usually lasts one to two hours. Individual employer instructors should be trained so they can train the designated employees exposed to electrical hazards.

Our professional staff will conduct on-site training classes for employees exposed to electrical hazards. Generally, two to three classes can be held per day. We also provide one-day courses held onsite at your location.

The course is designed to assist organizations in complying with the Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices Standard and general electrical safety guidelines, as well as the Lockout/Tagout Standard.

All attendees receive a copy of the our Lockout/Tagout Compliance Manual and Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices Compliance Manual.


Our safety professionals provide frequent presentations at safety meetings, conferences, association meetings, seminars, etc. These presentations provide a general overview of the standard and how to comply.
