Access and working space.

Sufficient access and working space must be provided and maintained about electric equipment to permit ready and safe operation and maintenance of such equipment.
Guidelines for the dimensions of access and workspace about electric equipment in generating stations are contained in American National Standard-National Electrical Safety Code, ANSI C2-2017. Installations meeting the ANSI provisions comply with this section. An installation that does not conform to this ANSI standard will, nonetheless, be considered as complying with this section if the employer can demonstrate that the installation provides ready and safe access based on the following evidence:
• That the installation conforms to the edition of ANSI C2 that was in effect at the time the installation was made;
• That the configuration of the installation enables employees to maintain the minimum approach distances required by this section while they work on exposed, energized parts; and
• That the precautions taken when work is performed on the installation provide protection equivalent to the protection that would be provided by access and working space meeting ANSI C2-2017.
