Summary

This chapter presents the general rules for employees defined in section 42 of Part Four of National Electrical Safety Code Handbook. In the 1987 Edition, Section 42 contained both the general rules and the special rules for supply system employees, and Section 43 contained the rules for communications employees, most of which duplicated the general rules contained here. In the 1990 Edition, the general rules for all employees were combined here; the special additional rules for supply employees were moved to Section 44. The section 42 contains the general work rules to be followed by all employees while working on or near the lines and equipment of public or private electric supply or communications utility systems. They include specific responsibilities for those persons designated by the employer to perform a control or supervisory function, as well as the responsibilities of individual workers.
