Coffee Break Training: Inspection Techniques: Electrical 'Classified Locations' (Part 1)   [open pdf - 351KB]

"The use of electrical wiring and equipment is truly pervasive. Business, industry, dwellings, hospitals, schools, government buildings, and even rural agricultural facilities could not operate as we know them today without the convenience and power of electrical energy. Despite its benefits, every safety inspector knows that electrical wiring and equipment are blamed for a substantial number of fires. In some cases, the installation or maintenance was faulty, or there was some unauthorized tampering with the equipment. In some cases, the equipment and devices installed turned out not to be suitable for their environment."
