Broward County’s Building Safety program calls for structural and electrical safety inspection for buildings 40 years old or older and every ten years, thereafter.

The following structures are exempt from the program:

  • One- and two-family dwellings
  • U.S. government buildings
  • State of Florida owned buildings.
  • Schools under the jurisdiction of the Broward County School Board
  • Buildings built on Indian reservations.
  • All buildings under 3,500 square feet

Instances of structural building failures have occurred in both Broward County and Dade County. The Building Safety program helps minimize the possibilities of future building failure and better prepares us for hurricane winds.

If the report proves there are structural or electrical deficiencies, the owner of the property will have 180 days from the date of the report to obtain the required permit(s) and complete the necessary repairs.

You will receive a certified letter with information about what you need to do if the 40-Year Building Safety Program affects your property.

Electrical Service

  • Size of amperage, if three (3) phase or single (1) phase, and if the system is protected by fuses or breakers.
  • Proper grounding of the service should be in good standing.
  • The meter and electric rooms should have sufficient clearance for equipment and for the serviceman to perform both work and inspections.
  • Gutters and electrical panels should all be in good condition throughout the entire building or structure.
  • Smoke Detectors
  • GFCI Receptacles

Branch Circuits

  • Branch circuits in the building must all be identified, and an evaluation of the conductors must be performed.
  • There should also exist proper grounding for equipment used in the building, such as an emergency generator, or elevator motor.

Conduit Raceways

  • All types of wiring methods present in the building must be detailed and individually inspected.
  • The evaluation of each type of conduit and cable, if applicable, must be done individually. The conduits in the building should be free from erosion, and check for considerable dents in the conduits that may be prone to cause a short. The conductors and cables in these conduits should be chafe free, and their currents not over the rated amount.

Emergency Lighting

  • Exit signs lighting and emergency lighting, along with a functional fire alarm system must all be in good working condition.
