Job Description for Electrical Superintendent

Electrical superintendents oversee all aspects of the planning, implementation, and completion of electrical projects of construction or repair work for construction contractors, private firms, or energy companies. Their duties include examining plans and potential sites, as well as developing a plan to install all electrical wiring and equipment installation needs to a new or renovated building. Electrical superintendents develop and enforce a budget for their projects, as well as supervise workers and field personnel in implementing the electrical plan. They also ensure all safety measures and regulations are followed, as accident prevention and worker safety are high priorities in this potentially dangerous environment. They monitor work progress and coordinate with the site coordinators or general superintendents to deliver progress reports. Testing and maintenance of completed facilities may also be the responsibility of electrical superintendents.
