WAC 296-307-37807

What work practices must be followed for work on exposed deenergized parts?

(1) This section applies to work on exposed deenergized parts or near enough to them to expose the employee to any electrical hazard they present. Conductors and parts of electric equipment that have been deenergized but have not been locked out or tagged must be treated as energized parts, and WAC 296-307-376 applies to work on or near them.
(2) While any employee is exposed to contact with parts of fixed electric equipment or circuits which have been deenergized, the circuits energizing the parts must be locked out or tagged or both according to the requirements of this section. The requirements must be followed in the order in which they are presented.
"Fixed equipment" means equipment that is fastened or connected by permanent wiring methods.
Note:
Lockout and tagging procedures that comply with WAC 296-307-320 will also be deemed to comply with WAC 296-307-37807 through 296-307-37817 if:
 
• The procedures address the electrical safety hazards covered by this part; and
 
• The procedures include the requirements of WAC 296-307-37813(4) and 296-307-37815(2).
