Does anyone know under what conditions there should be two Maintenance Employees assigned to working; ie filter replacement, capacitor R/R, routine PMs, on rooftop HVAC units at Postal facilities. It has ALWAYS been the practice at my facility to utilize two Maintenance employees (1 BEM and 1 MM or 2 BEM) to perform any HVAC work on our rooftop units. Our new Maintenance Manager (from Los Angeles PDC) is instructing 1 BEM to perform the work by himself. Only info I can find on the OSHA website is for “Fall Protection”. I would think the 2nd employee is necessary to act as a “safety monitor.” Any info is appreciated.
