Electrical Safety Inspections, Evaluations and Audits

Based on NFPA 70E®, NEC®, NFPA 70B® & OSHA 1910.300

Building a strong electrical safety program starts here.

Electrical Safety Inspections and Audits help organizations understand the safety issues and gaps in code and standard compliance associated with their plants and facilities, creating a better and safer workplace. The audit measure compliance against NFPA 70E®, NEC®, NFPA 70B® & OSHA 1910.300, and fulfills NFPA 70E requirement of conducting an electrical safety audit.

Upon completion of this program, organizations will have a clear picture of the electrical hazards or unsafe work practices that exist in their facility and a guide on how to correct them.

Scope of Work & Process

The Martin Technical Electrical Safety Inspection and Audits focus on installations, safe work practices and electrical maintenance at your site based on the NFPA 70® The National Electrical Code (NEC), NFPA 70E®, NFPA 70B®, NFPA 79® and OSHA 1910.331-335. Per NFPA 70E, the audit shall verify the principles and processes of the electrical safety program in compliance with NFPA 70E®, the field work shall be audited to verify the requirements of NFPA 70E®, and the audit shall be documented.

This report is conducted by an electrical safety specialist who has a strong understanding of these various regulations, codes and standards, who is also field experienced in electrical plant environments.

Each site visit will entail an inspection of electrical equipment and installations to identify items from the service point of your buildings down through the feeder circuits to various branch circuits. Employees will be interviewed and work practices observed for compliance with electrical safety work practices.

    • Itemized observations in which CFR or NFPA standards not being met
    • Illustrated / photograph of specific problem, when applicable
    • Recommended corrective action for each standard not being met
    • Critical Ranking on a subjective scale of 1 to 3 of each standard not being met. This ranking will serve as a “to do list” that maintenance and engineering teams can use as “road map” to corrective action.
  • Appendix of additional information to help implement recommended corrective actions.
  • Excel spreadsheet with report data for quick reading or uploading to safety management programs.
  • Copies of all photos taken with reference to their specific code deviation.
  • Final Report will be submitted within three (3) weeks after the assessment.

3.2 Support for LFMC

Rating Item # Description of Deficiency
3 3.2 Unsupported & Damaged LFMC conduit

3.2 Observation: LFMC is improperly supported which can lead to cuts, corrosion & peeling as seen below. The NEC Code requires supporting within 12” of each box and every 4’6” after. Many areas where LMFC is used should have rigid conduit instead.

Electrical Safety Audit Inspection sample
NEC 350.12 Uses Not Permitted. LFMC shall not be used as follows: (1) Where subject to physical damage NEC 350.30 (A) Securing and Supporting. Securely Fastened. LFMC shall be securely fastened in place by an approved means within 300 mm (12 in.) of each box, cabinet, conduit body, or other conduit termination and shall be supported and secured at intervals not to exceed 1.4 m (41⁄2 ft). Recommended Corrective Actions:

  • Replace with rigid conduit where possible
  • Shorten the runs where possible and use proper mounts/clamps
  • Use conduit supports where needed
