Special Occupancies

Hazardous Occupancies

Special Occupancies

NEC Chapter 5 deals with occupancies that require special considerations. The chapter includes requirements for hazardous (classified) areas, special or unusual hazards and unusual aspects of ordinary wiring systems.

The special aspects of these occupancies may include

an increased hazard to people, like in healthcare facilities,
increased hazards to other property or animals, such as agricultural buildings, or
an increased possibility of the electrical system becoming an ignition source, as in hazardous (classified) locations.

This module provides an overview of the occupancies covered in Chapter 5 and some of the special rules for them.
