Electric Power Generation, Transmission, and Distribution Advisiory Committee
Oregon OSHA developed the Electric Power Generation, Transmission, and
Distribution Advisory Committee after federal OSHA published revised Electric
Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution standards in the Federal
Register on April 11, 2014. The committee is comprised of industry stakeholders
including utilities, construction companies, and tree trimmers. Members of the
group include representatives from labor, management, and regulatory agencies.
The committee is tasked with addressing the federal revisions and evaluating Oregon-initiated rules Division 3\V of the Construction Standard, Division 2\R of the General Industry Standard, and a variety of other standards that may be affected such as PPE and Fall Protection.
This cooperation between Oregon OSHA and the industry stakeholders will result in a better understanding of the federal revisions and the ability to make changes to Oregon OSHA standards as necessary. The ultimate goal is to provide better protection for workers and a standard that is more inline with the industry's current technology.
