29 CFR 1910.332 - Training.
(a)Scope. The training requirements contained in this section apply to employees who face a risk of electric shock that is not reduced to a safe level by the electrical installation requirements of §§ 1910.303 through 1910.308.
Employees in occupations listed in Table S-4 face such a risk and are required to be trained. Other employees who also may reasonably be expected to face a comparable risk of injury due to electric shock or other electrical hazards must also be trained.
(b)Content of training -
(1)Practices addressed in this standard. Employees shall be trained in and familiar with the safety-related work practices required by §§ 1910.331 through 1910.335 that pertain to their respective job assignments.
(2)Additional requirements for unqualified persons. Employees who are covered by paragraph (a) of this section but who are not qualified persons shall also be trained in and familiar with any electrically related safety practices not specifically addressed by §§ 1910.331 through 1910.335 but which are necessary for their safety.
(3)Additional requirements for qualified persons. Qualified persons (i.e., those permitted to work on or near exposed energized parts) shall, at a minimum, be trained in and familiar with the following:
Table S-4 - Typical Occupational Categories of Employees Facing a Higher Than Normal Risk of Electrical Accident
|Blue collar supervisors. 1|
|Electrical and electronic engineers. 1|
|Electrical and electronic equipment assemblers. 1|
|Electrical and electronic technicians. 1|
|Industrial machine operators. 1|
|Material handling equipment operators. 1|
|Mechanics and repairers. 1|
|Riggers and roustabouts. 1|
|Stationary engineers. 1|
1 Workers in these groups do not need to be trained if their work or the work of those they supervise does not bring them or the employees they supervise close enough to exposed parts of electric circuits operating at 50 volts or more to ground for a hazard to exist.
