OSHA’s 1910 subpart S requires training for any employee who may come in contact with an electrical hazard. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace is OSHA’s go-to resource on best practices necessary for electrical safety.
NFPA updates their 70E standard every 3 years, with their most recent update issued in January of 2018. Check out this fact sheet from NFPA fact sheet about the 2018 updates.
