On February 14, 2007, federal OSHA issued this final rule (Federal Register) to revise the general industry electrical installation standard found in Subpart S of 29 CFR Part 1910. Federal OSHA determined that electrical hazards in the workplace pose a significant risk of injury or death to employees, and that the requirements in the revised standard, which draw heavily from the 2000 edition of the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces (NFPA 70E), and the 2002 edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC), are reasonably necessary to provide protection from these hazards. The N.C. Commissioner of Labor adopted this final rule verbatim with an effective date of August 13, 2007.
