OSHA regs

Anyone else in other shops seeing OSHA cuttin cords on tools with no ground prong? I haven't had this done to me but hearing about other mechanics tools being cut, they also did it to the shop's bench grinder before I got there now they have a shiny new dewalt.

This irritates me severely. I could see a warning to take it home and then a cut for violation but just doing it? Wth

I understand the logic behind some of the rules and try to follow them. I'm the provider for a wife and 3yr old and need to keep my job just like anyone else. But "no ground prong, ok snip" I have a really bright a$$ flashlight that's almost $200 and the charger has no ground I'm being told they'll cut it unless I get a protected strip like thing.

If the tool isnt insulated or grounded with the ground prong it has to go. I go through this daily, the tools or correct cords and plugs are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY cheaper than the fines that can be levied aginst the company and you can also be fined PERSONALLY. Didnt say I agree with it but its the nature of the beast that feeds my family.

Well what about the 12/18 volt chargers for drill batteries, drop light etc? I would like to know how to avoid this problem cause I will hit the roof. We are usually warned and everyone goes through their boxes and puts stuff in their cars for a while. Is that the only option?

Are you an inspector? If so I'm really glad you stopped by.

No sir, no inspector here. I am a construction superintendent in Atlanta, we are sent to several classes each year on new OSHA rulings and what the new spotlighted issues are coming up. Been through 12-15 inspections in the last 15yrs and have had to learn alot. As far as battery chargers and drop lights go, as long as the tool is insulated and has a UL listing on it from the factory you are in compliance. Now, Im speaking from past experience with code enforcement officers here in the Atlanta area and my occupation falls under 1926. OSHA has regulations for ALOT more than what I do so I can only speak for the construction industry.
