OSHA puts out a list of the top 10 most cited violations every year. Many of the same standards appear on the list again and again. So we’re pulling together some things to help you train your workers about each. Here, we’ve got a list of resources about electrical wiring hazards for you.

Electrical Wiring Safety FAQ
What’s the regulation, again?
Electrical—Wiring Methods, Components, and Equipment for General Use (1910.305)
Does OSHA have a Safety & Health Topic webpage for electrical hazards and regulations?
Does OSHA have any eTools for the electrical regulations?
Yep, three. One for the electrical standard as a whole, a second for electrical contractors, and a third for electrical generation, transmission, and distribution.
We would really draw your attention to the Subpart S-Electrical Standard eTool in particular. It has very helpful information on:
- General requirements
- Wiring design and protection
- Wiring methods and equipment
- Specific purpose equipment and installations
- Special systems
Basically, it seems real handy.
Does OSHA have a free downloadable publication to help control electrical hazards?
Why yes, they do have an online document titled Controlling Electrical Hazards.
Does OSHA offer any checklists to help small businesses comply and avoid hazards?
Here’s a handbook for small businesses (scroll down a little more than half way to find the electrical section).
What about NIOSH? Do they offer electrical safety resources too?
Glad you asked. Here’s a series of electrical safety resources from NIOSH.
