In addition to home safety, electrical inspectors and other industry professionals can also work to promote workplace safety both at work and out in the field to keep their businesses healthy and safe.
Sometimes inspectors are not fully appreciated and/or recognized for our efforts. Some view us as the bearers of bad news; or, more often, see us as the epitome of intolerance, rigidness, and inflexibility.
My accomplices and I have made up a mock service diagram to be used in an educational program. The electrical service is rated 4000 amps at 120/208 volts. We are supplying the service equipment with 12 sets of 600 kcmil aluminum type THWN per phase.

This report examines each facet of the electrical AHJ, from their departments, job titles, duties, third-party certifications, and the number of inspections per month.
