Temporary Power in Construction

Temporary electrical power systems during the construction phase can be equally as dangerous as any permanent installation, especially when installed by non-qualified electrical workers. This is why it is important that all installations regardless of their intended use be installed in a good craftsmanship manner. As we have all come to understand, a code-compliant installation is a safe installation.
