David Wallis, ESCI Director of Standards and Work Rules, Mr. David Wallis holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology, and is nationally recognized as a preeminent expert in electrical safety standards and work rules. He recently retired after 40 plus years developing Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) electrical safety standards. Mr. Wallis directed the OSHA Office of Engineering Safety for the last 10 years, authored 10 OSHA safety and health standards and contributed to dozens of others. David has examined the records of more than 6,000 electrical accidents and thousands of non-electrical accidents to determine their cause, allowing him to draft rules preventing the re-occurrence of those accidents.

Mr. Wallis is the primary author of most OSHA electrical standards, including OSHA 1910.269, OSHA 1926 Subpart V, OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. He also contributed to the promulgation of several other OSHA safety standards, such as the permit-required confined space standard in OSHA 1910.146. David has represented OSHA as an expert witness in several cases before the OSHA Review Commission.

David actively participates in national consensus standards writing committees by offering his extensive knowledge in occupational safety and health standards. He is an active member of ASTM F18, IEEE, the Engineering in the Safety, Maintenance, and Operations of Lines Subcommittee (ESMOL), NFPA 70E, and NESC Subcommittee 8 responsible for Part 4 "Work Rules."

Brian Erga, Director of Engineering Services and Special Projects, Mr. Brian Erga founded ESCI in 1990 to provide safety and training courses for electrical utility workers. Since then ESCI has developed a staff of nineteen nationally recognized professionals, knowledgeable in electrical safety and training services, safety consulting, safety standards and work methods development.

Mr. Erga is a 1978 graduate of the University of Washington, School of Electrical Engineering and has been involved in the Electrical Utility Industry for more than 39 Years. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), and the Engineering in the Safety, Maintenance, and Operations of Lines Subcommittee (ESMO).

Mr. Erga is an elected member to NESC-C2 "Work Methods" Committee and was active in the revision of the 2007 and 2012 NESC, currently active on the 2017 NESC publication. He is chairman of the ESMO Mechanical Equipment Task Force, chairman of the ESMO Induction Task Force and co-chair of the ESMO Underground Operations and Maintenance Work Group. He is an active member of many IEEE, ESMO, Federal OSHA, ANSI, and ASTM committees, work groups and task forces.

He actively participated in the revision process which produced the April 2014 publication of OSHA 1910.269 and OSHA 1926 Subpart V. As part of the revision process and close association with Federal OSHA's electric utility experts, Mr. Erga has in-depth knowledge of what the new regulations require and how they are to be interpreted. Mr. Erga has published a number of articles and spoke on effect of these new rules to the industry.

Mr. Erga has spoken at more than 1,400 locations across the country and provided expertise in safety and training services, accident investigations, safety consulting, work methods development, and expert witness services. He has been retained as an expert by the US Department of Labor, State OSHAs and many utilities for consulting and expert witness services.
