This citation raises the stakes against the USPS to almost $4 million in fines.  I’m very sure this will NOT be paid in full.  Just a strong message to USPS and others that electrical hazards and training are important. 

Recently I have found that the USPS does have arc flash labels available in house that are basic NEC 2005 labels noting requirement for arc flash and shock protection requirements.  So they are moving in the right direction.
