additional training for qualified persons
Additional Training for Qualified Persons
  • The skills and techniques necessary to distinguish exposed live parts from other parts of electrical equipment
  • The skills and techniques necessary to determine the nominal voltage of exposed live parts
  • The clearance distance specified in 1910.333(c) and the corresponding voltages to which the qualified person will be exposed
types of training
Types of Training

Section 1910.332 requires that instruction utilize either a classroom lecture or on-the-job training strategy. The degree of training provided is determined by the amount of risk to the employee
