Utah Electrical Safety: What you need to know
The state has adopted the federal rules for electrical safety in general industry workplaces (R614-1-4) and has adopted rules for electrical power in explosive areas that are stricter than federal rules.
The Utah Labor Commission/Division of Occupational Safety and Health (UOSH) administers and enforces safety and health rules for private and public sector workplaces in the state.
In any operations where a continuous supply of power is required, an alternate source of power must be provided if an interruption or lack of power may cause a hazard to employees.
The primary electrical supply to an explosives area must be arranged so that it can be cut off by switches located at one or more central points away from the area.
Static electricity. When static electricity is a hazard, nonsparking conductive floors and work surfaces or other approved methods to control and disperse static electricity are required. Continuity of grounding on all mechanical devices must be ensured.
Artificial lighting. Only artificial lighting devices approved for the location must be permitted in explosive areas
