I was excited when a search landed a “written program” for OSHA 1910.269 compliance from NYU. I have seen many government bodies which write nice programs. This is NOT one of them. No mention of arc flash, shock (except that if employees can be shocked they have to have a 4 min emergency response time) or NESC. Don’t think I’m missing anything unless the training is out of this world and they keep the policy vague to avoid the issue of not meeting what you write down.

You can read it to see if you get any ideas but you probably won’t if you read the OSHA 1910.269 Standard.
