There are building codes for every facet of construction from the foundation to the rooftop. The codes regulate materials, components, design and building practices to ensure the durability and safety of the structure and its systems including mechanical, electrical and plumbing. Each state has its own regulations and requirements that property owners and managers must adhere to or face fines for code violations. These standards must be followed to create a safe environment for occupants and visitors.

Building codes are the building blocks of the construction industry and impact us in many ways. They provide a standard benchmark that contractors must meet, to establish a building’s safety and energy performance for years to come.  Code Violations can create unnecessary impediments to the growth and success of your business. The best way is to know the top electrical violations that businesses struggle with so you can avoid them in the future.

Some of the more common electrical code violations include: overloaded conduits, knob and tube wiring, illegal splices, faulty electric panels, safety violations, overloaded circuits, damaged or exposed wires and cables, poor electrical connections, and insufficient emergency lighting.

It’s common that electrical systems in commercial and industrial buildings are just not kept up to speed with modern advancements. The National Electrical Code (NEC), frequently revises its standards and defines new standards of safety. These changes are essential as a result of rapid changes in technology, the introduction of new products, and new research studies.
