Employer premises/facilities registration explanation

In most instances, an employee doing electrical work must be supervised by a licensed master electrician who is an employee of the same employer. "Direct supervision" requires the licensed person to be on the job and actively supervising the electrical work. A licensed person may supervise not more than two unlicensed people (Minnesota Statutes Sections 326B.33, subdivisions 1 and 3).

Electrical maintenance work may be done by an employee who is a licensed maintenance electrician, or by an unlicensed person under the supervision of a licensed master electrician, licensed maintenance electrician, or electrical engineer employed by the same employer, or by the master electrician of record for an electrical contractor who has contracted with the employer. Personal supervision is not required for maintenance work. (Minnesota Statutes Sections 326B.31, subdivision 21 and 326B.33 subdivision 21).
