What Is The Real Meaning Of Electrical Safety Audits?

We all know tax audits are no fun. The same can be said for bank audits of your business. Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air isn’t here to tell you electrical safety audits are any fun either, but they are a crucial part of commercial electrical maintenance.


An electrical safety audit has several objectives:

  • Identify any potential hazards or dangerous situations and take corrective action.
  • Make sure the electrical system is in compliance with all applicable codes
  • Take corrective actions for work safety.
  • Identify electrical equipment modifications to increase efficiency.


When you accomplish those objectives, you can realize multiple benefits:

  • Increased comfort
  • Save money on electricity cost
  • Good for the environment by using less energy
  • Increase the resale value of the property

Choose The Right Type

What’s called a walk-through electrical safety audit is the least expensive and can provide a general overview of energy use and safety. A more thorough audit of your Montgomery or Auburn, AL building gives much more comprehensive information with specific recommendations for improvement. It will include an inspection of equipment and installations. The audit will start at the service point of your buildings and will track the feeder circuits to various branch circuits.

Limiting Risk

When you are a business or building owner, it’s vital you do everything you can to limit your risk. An electrical safety audit will identify and limit the risk of fires, electrical shocks, and more. Those are the primary risks, but we don’t have to tell you about the secondary risks you may have to deal with as a result of those occurrences. Liability lawsuits and workers comp claims can paralyze a business and cause huge financial damages.
When you call Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air for an electrical safety audit, as part of commercial electric maintenance, we will help you determine how the electrical equipment and accessories are using energy. We will also identify any hazardous conditions. Dixie will then present you with a comprehensive plan which allows you to identify the changes you want to make.
