Electrical Inspection Risks

While I was looking through back issues of IAEI Magazine I found an interesting article that discusses the risks that electrical inspectors face, and how those risks can be reduced. It talks about the following topics:

Risk From Job Site Hazards

Risk of Not Being a Qualified Person

Risk of Improper Personal Protective Equipment

Risk From Explosions, Arc Flash and Arc Blast

Risk of Bodily Harm From Property Owners

The article concludes by discussing "Winning Through Planning".

For example, since my experience primarily involved providing services to utilities and major manufacturing facilities, I had not considered the risk inspectors face from property owners who do not want their property inspected. The article makes this recommendation:

"Most of the problems dealing with the public can be mitigated with some planning prior to the inspection. If the inspection deals with a low income area, it’s helpful for the inspector to know the financial resources that may be available to the property owner for repairs or corrections."
