maintain copies of these publications. Do not hesitate to ask for their assistance. Make sure that
proper protective equipment and devices are used, hazardous work is preplanned, safety and
rescue equipment is readily available, tools and equipment are properly maintained, employees
are trained in CPR and rescue techniques, and alcohol is not consumed during the duty day or 8
hours prior to the shift.
6.4.1 Safety Practices. Safety related work practices should be used to protect personnel from
injury while they are working on or near electric circuits and equipment. Personnel should be
trained in the safety related work practices, safety procedures, and other personnel safety
requirements that pertain to their respective job assignments. Personnel should not be permitted
to work in an area where they are likely to encounter electrical hazards unless they have been
trained to recognize and avoid the electrical hazards to which they will be exposed. An electrical
hazard is identified as a dangerous electrical condition. Examples of electrical hazards are
exposed energized parts and unguarded electrical equipment which may become energized
unexpectedly. Specific work practices are required for work under three separate conditions, as
outlined in the following subparagraphs.
6.4.1.1 Work On or Near Deenergized Circuits and Equipment. When work to be
performed requires personnel to work on or near exposed circuit parts or equipment, when
danger of electrical shock; unexpected movement of equipment, or other electrical hazards, the
circuit parts and equipment that endanger the personnel should be deenergized, locked out,
tagged out and tried out. This shall in accordance with established Lockout-Tagout-Tryout
procedures. These Lockout-Tagout-Tryout procedures should include procedures for
implementation responsibility, training, and coordination with other procedures. They should
also contain detailed requirements for administration, deenergization of circuits and equipment,
application of locks and tags, verification of deenergized condition, tryout, coordination during
shift changes, restoration of electric service, testing, and temporary operation. The
Lockout-Tagout procedures should be appropriate for the voltage rating and complexity of the
electric circuits and equipment in the workplace. The procedure should also be appropriate for
the various personnel involved, and other conditions in the workplace that are likely to endanger
personnel who work on or near deenergized circuits and equipment.
6.4.1.2 Work Near Exposed Circuit Parts (Energized or may Become Energized). Where
it is not feasible to deenergize and lock out or tag out electric circuits and equipment, personnel
should be permitted to work near exposed electric conductors and circuit parts provided that the
appropriate work practices and safeguards are implemented to protect personnel from injury.
Personnel should be instructed to consider all exposed conductors and circuit parts to be
energized and dangerous. Safety related work practices shall be used to prevent electric shock or
other electrically induced injuries when work is performed in the proximity of exposed electric
conductors or circuit parts that have not been deenergized and locked out or tagged out in
accordance with subparagraph 6.4.1.1. Such work practices should include the use of safeguards
to prevent personnel from contacting energized circuit parts directly with any part of their body
