Development of The Code
The OSHAelectrical standards were based on the NationalFire Protection Association's standard NFPA 70E, "ElectricalSafety Requirements for Employee Workplaces." The NFPA70 Committee derived Part I of their document from the 1978edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC).
The standards extracted from the NEC were those consideredthe most applicable to employee safety and least likely tochange with each new edition of the NEC.
OSHA'selectrical standards are performance oriented;therefore they contain few direct references to the NEC.However, the NEC contains specific information as to how therequired performance can be obtained.
