Contemporaneous Review of Electrical and Plumbing Licenses
The City of Victor Building Inspectors are authorized, and required by State law, to perform random reviews of licenses of electricians and plumbers on job sites. Electrical and Plumbing workers are required, and expected, to carry their appropriate cards showing that they are a licensed Apprentice, Journeyman or Master worker, so that when requested, they can produce it. Inspectors will verify that the cards are current, and that no more than 3 apprentices per licensed Journeyman or Master workers are on the job. Non-compliant workers, and/or apprentices without the presence of their licensed Journeyman or Master, or workers unable to produce their cards will be required to leave the job site, and the Company shall be reported to DORA.
