Electrical inspections are very important in relation to the safety of various products and environments. Any type of electrical installations must comply with a specific set of rules and regulations, the violation of which may lead to product failure or other safety issues, as well as potential lawsuits. The failure of conducting the proper electrical inspections may also lead to electrical fires, electric shock, failed electrical systems, power outages, and other types of electrical accidents. Electrical engineering expert witnesses often provide information on which type of source caused an electrical incident.
Experts in electrical inspections may come from several different types of backgrounds and are often skilled with electrical engineering safety engineering, construction safety, electrical codes, wiring, lighting, electric utility systems, electrical contracting, automated control systems, security systems, mechanical engineering, and other specialties and electrical devices. It is therefore important to retain the electrical inspections expert witness whose background matches the particular details of the specfic case.
In addition to following the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), electrical inspectors must also be certified and/or licensed in the field. Because a construction project includes the process of electrical installation, many electrical inspectors are knowledgeable in building projects and the engineering aspects of various structures that utilize electricity. How an electrical system or device reacts to stress and vibration, corrosion, friction testing, and materials testing is essential in determining whether the electrical system or device in question complies with electrical codes and compliance.
Electrical inspections are required in maintaining safety for construction projects and building tenants, as well as any other area, system, or product powered by electricity.
