Webinar Examines New Electrical Installation Standard

The American Society of Safety Engineers will host a technical conference call via webinar on June 6 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. CST focusing on how OSHA's new standard for electrical installation will impact the safety, health, and environmental profession. The 90-minute call will include an overview and description of the new federal standard, its implementation and potential impact, how it will be enforced, and a 30-minute question-and-answer session.

The changes to OSHA's general industry electrical installation standard, which become effective Aug. 13, will focus on safety in the design and installation of electric equipment in the workplace. The updated standard includes a new alternative method for classifying and installing equipment in Class I hazardous locations; new requirements for ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs); and new provisions on writing for carnivals and similar installations.

David Wallis, OSHA's director of the Office of Engineering Safety, will give a presentation addressing the new standard. He has been with OSHA for more than 30 years and has significant experience with both safety engineering and the creation/implementation of public policy, ASSE says.

The "live" conference call features many tools including an interactive question and answer component, interactive polling for real-time feedback, and document downloads. A link to a post-session assessment will be e-mailed to all registered participants following the event. To register, go to www.asse.org or contact the ASSE Customer Service Department at 847-699-2929. For more information, contact ASSE's Michelle Miller at mmiller@asse.org.
