Minnesota has adopted by reference the federal general industry rules for electrical safety (MR 5205.0010), and added its own rule for cord and plug-connected equipment that is stricter than federal rules. Minnesota employers are subject to requirements identical to the federal rule.
The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (MDLI) administers and enforces workplace safety rules in the state.
CORD AND PLUG-CONNECTED EQUIPMENT
Exposed noncurrent carrying metal parts of cord and plug connected equipment that may become energized must be grounded if used near wet or conductive equipment, materials, or locations.
