Understanding Why Minimum Approach Distance Regulations Changed

April 5, 2021

Altitudes, humidity and transient over voltages, oh my! When OSHA updated its 1910.269 standards back in 2014, it brought about a number of changes to minimum approach distance—or MAD—requirements to take into account the unique environmental changes that can impact air insulation.  In this episode, Pam Tompkins goes over why those changes were made and how they help improve the safety of your workers. 

This discussion was developed from our popular online, self-paced video-driven course, OSHA Electric Power Standards with Pam Tompkins & Matt Edmonds. This course was built to provide you with a simple and practical way to learn about OSHA’s Electric Power standards 1910.269 and 1926 Subpart V and provide you with expert insight and interpretations that help you understand the applications of the regulation.
