Electrical Panels


Electrical panels or breaker boxes require special safety considerations, including the following:

  • Know where your panel box is located.
  • Do not tape circuit switches to keep a breaker from tripping.
  • Ensure that breaker circuits are accurately labeled within panel boxes.
  • Ensure that panel box doors are securely attached.
  • Do not block panel boxes. There should be at least 36 inches of clear space in front of a panel box.

Report tripped breakers and refer any electrical questions to the Facilities Department.
