GFCI for Temporary Wiring

Since the original introduction of the Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters in the 1971 National Electrical Code, these devices have proven to their users and the electrical community that they are worth the added cost during construction or remodeling. Published data shows a decreasing trend in the number of electrocutions in the United States since the introduction of GFCI devices. Unfortunately, no statistics are available for the actual number of injuries prevented by GFCI devices.
