Correction of Dangerous Conditions

30 CFR 56.12030 and 57.12030


30 CFR §56/57.12030 Correction of dangerous conditions
When a potentially dangerous condition is found it shall be corrected before equipment or wiring is energized


This standard requires that potentially dangerous conditions be corrected before equipment or wiring is energized.


There is no MSHA policy for this standard.


Issues to Consider in Determining Compliance:

        Is there a potentially dangerous electrical condition?

»      Is the equipment or wiring energized?

»      Is the potentially dangerous condition corrected before the equipment or wiring is energized?

        Are persons, or could persons be, affected by the potentially dangerous condition?
