TempCovers also meet all of OSHA's applicable standards. Additionally, this product "does not violate the limited accessibility provision in 29 CFR 1926.405(d). In fact, according to a letter from OSHA, "If a TempCover™ is used...the requirements in 29 CFR 1926.405(d) regarding accessibility would be met."
TempCovers are intended to be field installed by qualified persons over the electrical access opening of indoor electrical lighting and/or appliance branch and power circuit panelboard enclosures, or the like, on a temporary basis during intermissions in the process of wiring the internal components of the aforementioned devices.
TempCovers are puncture and tear resistant for long life durability, rated to 600VAC, non-conductive, magnet-reducing resulting in a reduced shock risk. They are made of a flame rated material with UL approval.
TempCovers are customized to meet every application including 14" residential panels to 20" industrial panels with lengths available up to 84".
How do we benefit from TempCovers® when used on a construction site?
A typical OSHA 1926 regulated construction site generally does not allow for working on live conductors. OSHA reasons in a construction zone electrical power can be de-energized because the loss of power will not cause a greater hazard. In other words, the project is still in construction, so is not fully functional. Typically, once the contractor installs a permanent service panel(s) on the job, this replaces the temporary electrical power source(s) for the jobsite. So there are times during construction that this service panel is open with live power on in incoming lines to pull wires and connect new circuits. Final electrical system commissioning also requires workers to work on live exposed energized conductors. In this case the worker may leave the service panel to check or verify the circuit in the field. If an electrician walks away form an open service panel, he needs to do one of the following:
Because OSHA 1910 General Industries contains more specific details on exposed live conductors than OSHA 1926 Construction, I have included related references from both documents.
