The NEC defines ready accessible as capable of being reached quickly for
operation, renewal, or inspections, without requiring those to whom
ready access is requisite to climb over or remove obstacles or to resort to
portable ladders, chairs, or other such devices. Therefore all workers in
vaults need to meet the confined space requirements of Section 8.





138 Space. The NEC defines working space as sufficient access provided
and maintained about all electric equipment to permit ready and safe operation and maintenance
of such equipment.

a. Working space in vaults has been provided in accordance with the NEC requirements
applying at the time the vault was built.

b. As with all safety aspects affecting both the public and workers, safety requirements
have, over the years, become more rigorous.

c. Although NEC current requirements do not apply to vaults built to previous NEC
editions, in line with Naval safety requirements, the NEC current requirements should be
compared by each activity with actual working space provisions.

d. Each activity should evaluate the comparisons as to their effect on workers safety and
provide SOP’s as necessary to assure safe working conditions.
