Ergomat Solutions to OSHA Requirements
OSHA requirements stipulate that electrical panels must be accessible at all times for routine maintenance, inspection or emergency service. In order to be compliant with OSHA clearance requirements relating to electrical panels, space in front of the panel must be 30" wide or the width of the panel.
Marked clearance space must be at least 3 feet, and accommodate 90o clearance for any hinged panel or access door. Under no circumstances should this buffer area be used for any permanent fixture installation or temporary storage. Combining DuraStripe Hazard Striping and signage provides the most efficient method of delineating the required clearance area and reinforcing this important safety message.
