Protect your employees and customers from unexpected safety and liability hazards resulting from continuous technology advances.
With new communications and technology installations, more cables are encased in ceilings, floors, and closets. Legacy cables from older technology systems and previous tenants that are not removed or tagged as disconnected and unused have come under scrutiny by property owners, fire protection professionals, building authorities, and local governments.
Abandoned cables may contain flammable and toxic material. Previously installed jacketed materials further increase the risk of harm to people and property in the event of a fire.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has revised the National Electrical Code (NEC) to address abandoned cables. Voice, data, audio, coaxial, and fiber optic cabling are subject to the electrical and fire-safety code change. Local authorities and insurers have stepped up their enforcement efforts and fire coverage.
Where the revised NEC code has been adopted, violations may result in government sanctions. Code violations can affect a building owner’s loan, access to insurance, obligations to tenants, and liabilities to victims in the event of a fire.
