Enforcement on the OSHA 1910.269 regulations on flame resistant clothing, arc flash hazard analysis and arc rated protective clothing was originally supposed to be set for the first of this year. The date was originally pushed back and the new date is right around the corner.
OSHA officials have said that they won’t be issuing citations before April 1st 2015 but with April less than 3 weeks away it’s important for employers to think about making sure that they have done the hazard analysis and are providing the right clothing and PPE for their employees.
The bottom line is that OSHA 1910.269 says that employers need to know what arc flash and potential flame hazards workers might be exposed to in the course of their job and make sure that their employees have the adequate protection.
