This list is an attempt to make sure that all safety issues are addressed before occupancy of a residential unit. However, completion of this list does not insure that all safety issues will necessarily be addressed for a specific site. The code states: "……that such portion or portions (of a building) shall be occupied safely prior to full completion of the structure without endangering life or public welfare." This is entirely up to the inspector at the time of inspection.

Direct all questions you might have to the Building Official/Inspector.

Note: All commercial and industrial projects must be inspected for a TCO by the Building Inspector, for safety items and safe access to the building or to certain areas of the building by the public. There is no set standard list of inspection items for these types of projects.
