Did you know that the Independent Electrical Contractors and OSHA have a joint alliance for the protection of electrical workers? According to the OSHA web page:

“Through the Alliance, OSHA and IEC will continue to work together to provide IEC members and others in the construction industry with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to fall and arc flash hazards and addressing electrical and motor vehicle safety issues.

This alliance is meant to provide electrical contractors with the tools and knowledge required to provide a safe working environment for their employees. It covers the various standards that apply to the electrical trade as well as some solutions and sample programs employers can utilize to bolster their safety efforts.”
