TORQUE
The National Electrical Code contains a provision that electrical connections and equip-
ment be torque to a proper specication. This requirement is not direct, but rather is an
indirect guidance that relies on listing and labeling requirements agreed upon by the test-
ing laboratory and the manufacturer.
110.3 (B) INSTALLATION AND USE
(OF EQUIPMENT)
The National Electrical Code section
110.3 states: Listed or labeled equipment
shall be installed and used in accordance
with any instructions included in the list-
ing or labeling.
Section 110.3(B) applies where installation instructions accompanying listed and labeled
products contain specic torque requirements, as they often do. In addition, the rst
sentence of Section 110.14 entitled Electrical Connections, says that because of different
characteristics of dissimilar metals, devices such as
pressure terminal or pressure splicing connectors
shall be identied for the material of the conduc-
tor and shall be properly installed and used. This
section ends with an Information Note informing the
installer that Many terminations and equipment are
marked with a tightening torque. Again, this points
to a requirement for the installer to torque electrical
connections.
Commentary material from The National Electrical
Code Handbook following Section 110.14 details
torque requirements that Underwriters Laboratories
uses where a manufacturer has not supplied conduc-
tor connection torque values. Of course these are
general values and should only be used where torque
requirements are not available from the manufacturer
of the product.

NJATC TORQUE CURRICULUM FOR BOTH APPRENTICE AND JOURNEYMAN TRAINING
New for 2010 is the NJATC Torque Workbook. In partnership with
Snap-on Tools, the NJATC has developed a NJATC Torque Workbook
(J242) that includes the reference material at the end of each lesson. The
ve-lesson workbook includes: (1) Torque Theory; (2) Threaded Fasten-
ers Basics; (3) Introduction to Torque Applications; (4) Torque Products-
JW lesson only; and (5) Real World Electrical Torque Applications. The
torque workbook is a new addition to the Inside 3
rd
year curriculum.
FREE RENTAL OF TORQUE WRENCHES FOR LAB EXERCISES
The NJATC has developed an
agreement with Snap-on Tools
that allows JATC training centers
to borrow a "Torque-in-a Can" kit
for lab exercises at no charge. This kit is also available for purchase
at an impressive low price.
A Snap-On Torque Kit is available to use at the IBEW/NECA Train-
ing Centers for a couple of weeksat no cost. This program is
administered by Snap-on Industrial (Tools)they have created sev-
eral kits specically for our JATC training centers to borrow. These
traveling kits contain (4) torque wrenches and a lab manual for the JATC training centers to supplement the
NJATC workbook lessons. The torque lessons are in Section-1 of the 2010 Inside 3
rd
year workbook.
Order anytime and have the kit shipped so it can be timely with your torque lessons. This kit can also be
utilized later in the school year at regularly scheduled lab periods at your training center. Please contact
Chad Hale of Snap-on. He administers the program...not the NJATC. He will ship you (at no cost) one kit
for you to use for a week or so. The only catch is that you have to pay for shipping the kit (and the tools
sorry) back to himor to the next JATC training center. Chad will discuss the details with you.
SO, contact him...with both an email (Shipping address, JATC programs, Training Director name, phones,
etc.) and by phone to verbally discuss the details. Discuss with Chad the required materials you may need
to provide locally.
One other thing...Snap-on is offering a very low price to purchase a set of these tools for keep (not the tools
in the shipping case)so you might want to talk to Chad about that tooit is a sweet deal.

OSHA ANNOUNCES AN ADDITIONAL SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO ITS 10- AND
30-HOUR TRAINING GUIDELINES
OSHA has announced that, effective immediately, 10- and
30-hour classes cannot be conducted for more than 7.5
hours per day. This will require that the OSHA 10-hour
class is conducted over a period of at least 2 days and that
the OSHA 30-hour class is conducted over a period of at
least 4 days. OSHA advises that outreach trainers who do
not follow these guidelines will not receive 10- or 30-hour
cards to issue to their students for classes conducted.
OSHA explains that the move to limit training to 7.5 hours
a day will allow for a more reasonable time increment to en-
sure higher quality of safety training. It will also allow the trainee to better able to retain key safety informa-
tion in order to meet the goal of outreach training: to recognize and avoid hazards.
OSHA states that exceptions to this requirement will only be granted in extremely extenuating circum-
stances and only when a request for an exception is sent at least 8 weeks in advance of the scheduled start
date for the training. OSHA, anticipating what some might consider an extremely extenuating circumstance,
advises that cost savings, trainer availability, time limits or missing work will NOT qualify for an exception.
The request for exception is to be sent to:
Director, Ofce of OSHA Outreach Training and Educational Programs
2020 South Arlington Heights Road
Arlington Heights, IL 60005
Again, effective immediately, OSHA 10- and 30-hour classes cannot be conducted for more than 7.5 hours
per day (with extremely limited exceptions). OSHA warns that outreach training that does not follow these
guidelines will not qualify for 10- or 30-hour cards for the classes conducted.

OSHA PUBLISHES FINAL RULE ON CRANES AND DERRICKS IN CONSTRUCTION
Due to the signicant number of fatalities associated with the use of cranes in construction, the Occupa-
tional Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced and published a new rule addressing the use of
cranes and derricks in construction which will affect approximately 267,000 construction, crane rental and
crane certication establishments employing about 4.8 million workers. OSHA advises that the new rule is
designed to prevent the leading causes of fatalities, including electrocution, crushed-by/struck-by hazards
during assembly/disassembly, collapse and overturn. It also sets requirements for ground conditions and
crane operator assessment as well as tower crane hazards, the use of synthetic slings for assembly/disas-
sembly work, and claries the scope of the regulation by providing both a functional description and a list
of examples for the equipment that is covered.
The current rule, which dates back to 1971, is based on 40-year-old standards. The new rule, which will be
Part 1926 Subpart CC, is quite comprehensive and is scheduled take effect on November 8, 2010. In addi-
tion to residing in Subpart CC and being comprised of a numbering sequence that begins with 1926.1400,
the new rule will impact a number of other new and existing Part 1926
subparts including, but not limited to C, L, M, N, O, R, S, T, V, X, and
DD.
An exclusion to the 1926.1400 scope indicates that digger derricks used
for augering holes for poles carrying electric and telecommunication
lines, placing and removing the poles, and for handling associated ma-
terials to be installed on or removed from the poles, are not covered by
Subpart CC. Digger derricks used in work subject to 29 CFR Part 1926,
subpart V, must comply with 29 CFR 1910.269. Digger derricks used in
construction work for telecommunication service (as dened at 29 CFR
1910.268(s)(40)) must comply with 29 CFR 1910.268.
An overview of the content of Subpart CC is as follows:

Appendix C to Subpart CC of part 1926--Operator Certication- Written Examination Technical Knowledge
Criteria
The history of this new rule can be traced to 2003 when the Secretary of Labor appointed a 23-member
Cranes and Derricks Advisory Committee (CDAC) representing manufacturers and trade associations.
These stakeholders from the construction industry recognized the need to update the safety requirements,
methods and practices for cranes and derricks, and to incorporate technological advances in order to provide
improved protection for those who work on and around cranes and derricks. The CDAC met 11 times until
a consensus on the regulatory text was reached in July 2004. The proposed rule was published October 9,
2008, with public comments taken until January 22, 2009. Public hearings were held in March 2009, and
the public comment period on those proceedings closed in June 2009. OSHA staff incorporated input from
the public comments and testimony to develop the nal regulatory text.
In summary, the new rule is quite comprehensive with the signicant portions of the rule scheduled take
effect on November 8, 2010. The complete rule is available at http://www.osha.gov/FedReg_osha_pdf/
FED20100809.pdf. The regulation text is available at http://www.osha.gov/cranes-derricks/index.html.

NJATCs OSHA 10-Hour Course
In accordance with OSHAs Construction Industry
Outreach Training Program
The NJATC is fully aware of the fact that in order for the IBEW and NECA to remain competitive we
must provide the very best training material for our members and contractors. To that end, the monthly
Lifetime of Learning segment of the NJATC News will highlight textbooks and workbooks that can help
our members and contractors maintain the competitive edge.
Motor Controls Textbook
In 2010, a new Motor Controls Textbook and Workbook has been intro-
duced. This new course has been designed to meet the eventual re-
quirements of Core Curriculum. Until such time the Core Curriculum is
implemented for all JATCs, the Motor Control Curriculum will continue
to be used in the 4
th
Year of the Inside Curriculum.
The Motor Control curriculum has been broken into three distinct
sections. Each section builds on the previous section and presents
new information designed to present the learner with a systematic
approach to understanding motor control. The frst section focuses
on Magnetic Motor Control and includes eight chapters. The sec-
ond section focuses on devices and controls which includes elec-
tronic components, and is titled Electronic Motor Controls. This
section also includes eight chapters. The third and fnal section is
titled Advanced Motor Control. This section introduces advanced
topics such as VFDs, Programmable Controllers, etc.
