Solar systems (also known as photovoltaic systems) are an increasingly more common source of energy for companies looking to decrease their carbon footprint. Like any energized environment, solar systems come with electrocution risks and other dangerous hazards that can lead to serious injury or death. As a result, OSHA requires facilities with a solar system to adhere to the labeling standards established by the NEC, ANSI, and ASME.
These standard-focused organizations are trusted names in industrial safety, and, since OSHA doesn’t actually create standards themselves but rather enforce the standards created by the above-named agencies, it’s crucial that safety managers make sure labels, signs, and other forms of visual communication adhere to necessary standards. Since all of the standards required to stay in compliance address hazard, risk, and injury level, it’s important to address To ensure your facility stays OSHA-compliant, it’s important to understand the various types of labels required for Solar systems (PV). For solar systems, it’s absolutely crucial that visual communication abide by NEC 2017 div 690, and IFC 2012.
