How Does OSHA enforce NFPA 70E?

NFPA 70E is not Incorporated by "Reference" in
29 CFR 1910
However, OSHA has several requirements that are enforced and apply directly to the NFPA 70E Standard:

29 CFR 1910.132 (d)(1):
Requires employers perform a personal protective equipment (PPE) hazard assessment to determine necessary PPE.

29 CFR 1910.269 (l)(6)(iii):
Requires employers ensure each employee working at electric power generation, transmission, and distribution facilities who is exposed to the hazards of flames or electric arcs does not wear clothing that could increase the extent of injury when exposed to such a hazard.

29 CFR 1910.335 (a)(1)(i):
Employees working in areas where there are potential electrical hazards shall use electrical protective equipment appropriate for the specific parts of the body for the work being performed.

29 CFR 1910.335 (a)(1)(iv):
Requires employees wear nonconductive head protection whenever exposed to electric shock or burns due to contact with exposed energized parts

29 CFR 1910.335 (a)(1)(v):
Employees shall wear protective equipment for the eyes or face wherever there is danger of injury to the eyes or face from electric arcs or flashes or from flying objects resulting from an electrical explosion.

29 CFR 1910.335 (a)(2):
Employees shall use insulated tools or handling equipment when working near exposed energized conductors or circuit parts.

29 CFR 1926.28 (a):
Employer shall require employees wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during construction work.
