### DOE HANDBOOK ELECTRICAL SAFETY

File Size: 1.54 Mb

Description
This Department of Energy (DOE) Handbook is approved for use by the Office of Environment, Safety, and Health and is available to all DOE components and their contractors.

The DOE Electrical Safety Handbook replaces the DOE Electrical Safety Guidelines that was originally issued in 1993. DOE handbooks are part of the DOE directives system and are issued to provide supplemental information regarding the DepartmentÕs expectations for fulfilling its requirements as contained in rules, Orders, notices, and regulatory standards. The handbooks may also provide acceptable methods for implementing these requirements. Handbooks are not substitutes for requirements, nor do they replace technical standards that are used to describe established practices and procedures for implementing requirements.

This document contains DOE developed explanatory material in support of OSHA regulations and nationally recognized electrical safety related standards and other information. This document was revised to include electrical safety for enclosed electrical and electronic equipment, research and development, and the latest editions of 29CFR 1910 and 1926, National Electrical Code, National Electrical Safety Code, and National Fire Protection Association 70E as of September 1997.
