Electrical Protective Equipment; Corrections

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Labor.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On April 11, 2014 (79 FR 20316), the Occupational Safety and 
Health Administration published a final rule: Revising the general 
industry standards for electric power generation, transmission, and 
distribution work and for electrical protective equipment; revising the 
construction standard for electric power transmission and distribution 
work; and adopting a new construction standard for electrical 
protective equipment. The final rule updated those standards and made 
the general industry and construction standards consistent. This 
document corrects errors in the preamble and regulatory text of the 
final rule.

DATES: These corrections become effective on September 24, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 11, 2014, OSHA published a final 
rule: (1) Revising its general industry and construction standards at 
29 CFR 1910.269 and 29 CFR part 1926, subpart V, respectively; (2) 
revising its general industry standard for electrical protective 
equipment at 29 CFR 1910.137 and adding a corresponding standard for 
construction at 29 CFR 1926.97; and (3) revising several other related 
provisions in OSHA's standards for general industry and construction 
(79 FR 20316).
    OSHA has identified some errors in the preamble and regulatory 
text. One of those errors is in OSHA's explanation of training 
requirements for unqualified employees. The preamble stated that 
unqualified employees who operate, but do not maintain, circuit 
breakers must receive training in accordance with Sec.  
1910.269(a)(2)(i) or Sec.  1926.950(b)(1) (79 FR 20348-20349). However, 
as noted in several other places in the preamble, in general, neither 
Sec.  1910.269 nor subpart V govern the electrical safety-related work 
practices used by unqualified employees. (See, for example, 79 FR 
20339, 20348, and 20410.) As described later, OSHA is correcting the 
preamble discussion at 79 FR 20349 to indicate that such unqualified 
employees generally must receive training under Sec.  1910.332 or Sec.  
1926.21(b), as applicable.
    In addition, Appendix A-2 to final Sec.  1910.269 inaccurately 
describes how to determine whether Sec.  1910.269 or subpart S of part 
1910 contains the applicable requirements for electrical safety-related 
work practices. The flow chart in that appendix asks whether the 
employee is qualified ``as defined in Sec.  1910.269(x).'' In subpart 
V, final Sec.  1926.950(a)(1)(ii) states explicitly that subpart V does 
not apply to electrical safety-related work practices for unqualified 
employees. Thus, for the purposes of subpart V, if a worker is not a 
qualified employee as defined in Sec.  1926.968, subpart V does not 
address the electrical safety-related work practices that employee must 
use. However, the exemption in final (and the previous version of) 
Sec.  1910.269(a)(1)(ii)(B) is less direct, excluding electrical 
safety-related work practices covered by subpart S of part 1910. In 
subpart S, Sec.  1910.331(b) provides that Sec. Sec.  1910.332 through 
1910.335, which address training, selection and use of work practices, 
use of equipment, and safeguards for personnel protection, apply to 
work performed by unqualified persons on, near, or with electric power 
generation, transmission, or distribution installations. Consequently, 
the

[[Page 56956]]

electrical safety-related work practices for employees who are not 
qualified persons (employees) as that term is defined in subpart S 
(Sec.  1910.399) are in subpart S, not Sec.  1910.269. However, Sec.  
1910.269 does apply to electrical safety-related work practices for 
employees who are qualified under subpart S, but not qualified under 
Sec.  1910.269.\1\ This class of employee includes, in particular, 
line-clearance tree trimmers, as explained in the preamble to the 1994 
final rule adopting the previous version of Sec.  1910.269 (59 FR 4320, 
4336, 4409-4410, Jan. 31, 1994). For this reason, OSHA is correcting 
the first question in the flow chart in Appendix A-2 to Sec.  1910.269 
so that it refers to the definition of ``qualified'' in Sec.  1910.399 
instead of the definition of that term in Sec.  1910.269(x).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ With respect to the example provided at 79 FR 20348-20349, 
it is possible that a worker operating, but not maintaining, a 
circuit breaker could be qualified under subpart S, but not under 
Sec.  1910.269. In that case, the training requirements in Sec.  
1910.269(a)(2)(i) would apply instead of the requirements in Sec.  
1910.332. Because OSHA believes such cases are relatively rare, the 
Agency is clarifying the preamble to address the more likely case in 
which the worker is not qualified under subpart S and Sec.  1910.269 
does not apply.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Table 1 to Appendix A-2 lists, in separate columns, paragraphs in 
Sec.  1910.269 that apply regardless of compliance with subpart S and 
paragraphs in Sec.  1910.269 for which compliance with subpart S is 
deemed to be compliance with Sec.  1910.269. This table in the final 
rule inadvertently lists the paragraph numbers as they appeared in the 
previous version of Sec.  1910.269. OSHA is correcting these references 
to match the corresponding provisions in the final rule. OSHA is also 
adding references to new provisions that have no counterpart in subpart 
S to the list of provisions requiring compliance regardless of 
compliance with subpart S (specifically, the information-transfer 
requirements in Sec.  1910.269(a)(3) and the requirements on protection 
from flames and electric arcs in Sec.  1910.269(l)(8)). In addition, 
the Agency is moving Sec.  1910.269(i)(3) on portable and vehicle-
mounted generators from the list of provisions that apply regardless of 
compliance with subpart S to the list of provisions for which 
compliance with subpart S is deemed to be compliance with Sec.  
1910.269. When OSHA adopted the previous version of Sec.  1910.269 in 
1994, subpart S did not contain requirements for portable or vehicle-
mounted generators. However, the 2007 revisions to the installation 
requirements in subpart S included provisions equivalent to those in 
Sec.  1910.269(i)(3) (72 FR 7136; Feb. 14, 2007). Those subpart S 
requirements appear in Sec.  1910.304(g)(3).
    OSHA also found an error in the regulatory text of final Sec.  
1910.269(h), which contains requirements for portable ladders and 
platforms. In the preamble to the final rule, OSHA explained why the 
Agency did not apply final Sec.  1926.955(b)(1) to portable ladders as 
follows:

    Paragraph (b)(1) of final Sec.  1926.955 requires portable 
platforms to be capable of supporting without failure at least 2.5 
times the maximum intended load in the configurations in which they 
are used. Paragraph (b)(1) in the proposed rule also applied this 
requirement to portable ladders. However, Sec.  1926.1053(a)(1), 
which also applies, already specifies the strength of portable 
ladders. Having two standards with different strength requirements 
for portable ladders would be confusing. Consequently, OSHA revised 
Sec.  1926.955(b)(1) in the final rule so that it covers only 
portable platforms. [79 FR 20405]

    Section 1926.1053 does not apply to portable ladders used in work 
covered by Sec.  1910.269, and the general industry requirements for 
portable ladders in subpart D of part 1910 do not contain comparable 
requirements for the strength of portable wood ladders (Sec.  1910.25) 
or metal ladders (Sec.  1910.26) and do not address portable fiberglass 
ladders at all. Consequently, the rationale behind OSHA's decision to 
drop portable ladders from final Sec.  1926.955(b)(1) does not apply to 
the equivalent requirement in final Sec.  1910.269(h)(2)(i). However, 
in adopting that provision in final Sec.  1910.269, OSHA copied the 
language from final Sec.  1926.955(b)(1), thus inadvertently dropping 
the strength requirement for portable ladders from the general industry 
provision. This document corrects that oversight and restores the 
language from the previous version of the standard.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The previous version of Sec.  1910.269(h)(2)(iv) required 
portable ladders to be capable of supporting without failure at 
least 2.5 times the maximum intended load in the configurations in 
which they are used.
