Everyone,

1910.335 requires employers to provide face and eye protection to
employees "wherever there is a danger of injury from electric arcs or
flashes or from flying objects resulting from electrical explosion.


My question is what are the conditions necessary to create an electric
arc, arc flash, or an electrical explosion?


Thanks,


MikeCJ

Hi Mike,
Welcome to ECN!. [Linked Image]
I would be looking at having more than eye and face protection, if I was in a situation where an arc flash could occur.
All that is required to cause an arc fault is say a tool slipping (screwdriver or spanner), or a tool falling onto some live equipment.
If this doesn't help at all, please ask more questions, we have a good knowledge base here.
Cheers,
Mike. [Linked Image]

It might help if you follow the link I will provide at the bottom of the post to OSHA

The link will take you to OSHA standard interpretations in the "Text Search" field type in "1910.335" and you will find 16 standard interpretations about that section.

They are not all that helpful, just like when is wearing a hard hat required?

When something might fall on your head

Thanks that is helpful. [Linked Image]

Mikecj, you bring up a good point. Training in 29CFR1910.331 through .335 in nothing short of mandatory in the US. These sections involve both “qualified” and “unqualified” workers. See: .331
.332 .333
.334
.335

And don’t forget LO/TO.. .147
