  • Benefits of using an electrical inspection checklist app

What are the requirements of an electrical inspection checklist?

The electrical inspection checklist should include the items that ensure your property or workplace’s adherence to National Electrical Code (NEC) electrical safety standards. It works as a guidance document that helps in electrical safety inspections of any property. The NEC, or NFPA 70, is a standard for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment in the U.S., published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Who uses an electrical inspection checklist and why?

Electrical inspectors, property owners, and property managers can use this electrical inspection checklist to perform electrical system inspections of. residential or commercial properties. The purpose of this checklist is to ensure that the property’s electrical system complies with the NEC electrical safety guidelines. It helps in identifying any electrical hazards and checks whether the equipment is in proper condition and functioning as it should.

Why use an electrical inspection checklist app?

An electrical inspection checklist app simplifies the process of electrical inspections, enabling users to quickly and efficiently perform routine electrical inspections using their mobile device rather than error-prone pen and paper. It allows you to take pictures that are automatically connected to the inspection record to document any system issues and share them in real time.
