Who does this apply to?
Anyone who purchases electrical tools and /or equipment.

What’s it about?
All electrical equipment and conductors installed in the CAFO facilities must be “Approved,” “Certified,” “Identified,” or “Listed” and “Labeled” to establish that the electrical equipment is safe, free of electrical shock and fire hazard, and suitable for the purpose for which it is intended to be used. The manufacturer shall have the specific authorization of one of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) approved Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTLs) in accordance with the applicable national standards to label the equipment as suitable. This NRTL label shall be affixed to all equipment.

Further detailed information on the specific NRTLs, as well as the product standards that they are specifically recognized to evaluate can be found on the OSHA Web site.

Where such labeling is unavailable, the equipment shall be certified for use in CAFO facilities by a third party agency acceptable to the Authority Having jurisdiction (AHJ). The submitted substantiating data shall show conformity to recognized national standards such as UL, FM, ANSI, NEMA and IEEE. Submittal of test data shall include “type” (design) test reports as well as “production” test reports. Seller shall state in his quotation any confidentiality requirements and/or restrictions for submittal of this documentation. The vendor shall be responsible for all fees associated with the third party certification and documentation review by the AHJ. A copy of the data submitted to the AHJ shall be provided to the Purchaser.

LOTO
Who does this apply to?
The fundamental minimum requirement of LOTO is that each individual servicing a piece of equipment will individually lockout & tagout every source of energy associated with the equipment. This procedure discusses the practical ways this requirement is met and the various exceptions at this site. It covers equipment lockout/tagout procedures, and all types of energy sources, including electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, and radiation.

Electrical Safety While Working on or Near Exposed Energized Electrical Parts Less than 600 Volts
Who does this apply to?
Qualified individuals who have been authorized by their supervisor to work on or near energized electrical equipment less than 600 volts.
