The standards in Subpart S are consistently in the top 10 in OSHA’s most frequently cited standards lists and highest penalties assessed lists. The standards in Subpart S are complex and often misunderstood—even by professional electricians.
Use the checklist here to conduct an electrical safety inspection of your workplace. Add the citation for the OSHA standard for each question. In the comments section for each item, include your recommendations for correcting the violations. If a checklist item does not apply to your organization, explain why in the comments. In the summary section at the end of the checklist, discuss the significance of any noncompliance you found, and identify the types of injuries that might result if the violations are left uncorrected.
If you did not find any noncompliance, discuss what your organization does to prevent electrical safety violations and electrical injuries. Compile the checklist information into a report that outlines the major issues, if any, found in your workplace.
The case study should be a minimum of two pages in length (double-spaced), including the completed checklist. The report must follow APA guidelines for formatting, and the report must include a title page and reference page.
