Abstract
Everett [1997] described 3 electrical construction activities that consume 10% or more of the total work for the trade in southwestern Michigan. These activities were install conduit, install wiring, and install lighting systems and fixtures. Breakout session participants added 3 more activities-install residential wiring, install underground service, and install switchgears. Parti­cipants noted that wire and cable are not only housed in conduit piping, but also in other types of channels and, therefore, suggested that attach conduit to wall or ceiling be changed to attach raceway to wall or ceiling. Time constraints prevent­ed a full discussion of the additions to the list. After discussion, a majority of electrical breakou t session participants suggested modifying the risk scores assigned to several tasks.
