No. 9 Violation: Electrical Wiring Methods

The good news here is that this “electrically focused” category dropped one place in the rankings from last year. Section 1910.305 focuses on Electrical Wiring Methods, components, and equipment for general use. It does not, however, apply to conductors that are an integral part of factory-assembled equipment. This category also posted the largest decrease in violations, with 464 fewer as compared to last year’s listing.

There were a total of 1,940 violations issued in this category.
