    No. However you still have to do it safely. You also have to take care to make sure the innards of the equipment you are installing don't get wet.

    I don't think OSHA advises for or against anything. They tell you very plainly what you can and cannot do. That said I've worked in the rain may times. I keep a raincoat in the truck and sometimes I wear it (other times it just too hot).

    Since live work is forbidden in most cases, working in the rain doesn't really matter
    Electricians do it until it Hertz!
