5 Ways to Prevent shocks and other electrical injuriesAccording to a study done by the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2,287 U.S. workers died and 32,807 sustained lost-time injuries from electrical shock or burn injuries between 1992 and 1999. Of these 32,807 non-fatal injuries involving lost time, 38 percent were classified as electrical burns. Each injury caused an average of 13 days away from work, and nearly one fatality occurred every day of the year. While this study is several years old, it's still relevant today because we continue to face the same issues with electrical shock and burn injuries. Here are two regulatory updates issued in response to this problem, with guidance on providing a safe workplace: OSHA Electrical Standard Update, Subpart S of 29 CFR Part 1910 OSHA, in the proposed rule, explains the reason for the update. OSHA undertook the project to revise 29 CFR Part 1910, Subpart S, for two major reasons. First, OSHA wanted the standard to reflect the most current practice and technology in the industry. Second, in implementing the rule, OSHA responded to requests from stakeholders to revise Subpart S so it reflects more recent editions of NFPA 70, the National Electrical Code, and NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. According to OSHA's press release of Feb 13, 2007, "The changes to OSHA's general-industry electrical-installation standard focus on safety in designing and installing electrical equipment in the workplace. Included in the new standard are a new alternative method for classifying and installing equipment in Class I hazardous locations and new requirements for ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs). The 2000 edition of the NFPA 70E was used as a foundation for the revised standard. The final rule also replaces the reference to the 1971 National Electrical Code in the mandatory appendix to the powered-platform standard with a reference to OSHA's new electrical-installation standard." The final rule becomes effective Aug. 13, 2007. To read OSHA's "Safety and Health Topics" for electrical, visit http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/electrical/ index.html. Navy Electrical Update Navy photo by MC3 Marvin E. Thompson, Jr. The Navy is ahead of OSHA in updating electrical-safety standards. The Navy updated the Tri-Services Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 3-560-01, with Change 1, "Electrical Safety, Operations and Maintenance (O&M)," to meet the requirements of NFPA 70E 2004. This UFC supersedes UFC-3-560-10N (previously MIL-HDBK-1025/10), Safety of Electrical Transmission and Distribution Systems, referenced in OpNavInst 5100.23G. It incorporates tri-service requirements into one unified document and provides electrical-safety requirements for all shore electrical-work activities (low and high voltage) and addresses implementing NFPA 70E 2004 arc-flash criteria for electrical safety. An updated version of OpNav P-45-117-6-98, Electrical Worker Field Safety Guide, incorporating the requirements of this UFC, is being developed and should be available in the near future. Remember, regulations always are the minimum requirements to ensure worker safety. OSHA's 29 CFR 1910, Subpart S, and the Tri-Service UFC provide guidance to help ensure your command's electrical workers have a safe workplace. You always can take more steps to further protect yourself and your fellow workers.
