WAC 296-824-50025

Use the buddy system in danger areas.

You must:
• Make sure operations and tasks (including limited actions) in danger areas are conducted using the buddy system in teams of two or more.
Danger areas are areas where conditions pose a serious danger to employees, such as areas where:
• Immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH) conditions could exist.
• High levels of exposure to toxic substances could exist.
• There is a potential for exceeding the lower explosive limit (LEL), also known as the lower flammability limit (LFL), of a hazardous substance.
