I do electrical safety audits in our production facilities. Over the last several years many of the facilities have used electrical cord drops more and more because of the amount of time saved on installations. Because this is related to production there are no electrical inspections performed. I feel that they should be used only when it makes sense. While NEC 400.1 makes allowances for cord usageage, email@example.com it should be an exception and not a rule. I have also required that PM's be performed on the cords on at least an annual basis. Any thoughts?
