Just Give Us The Power;
(And we'll take it from there!)

I revisited a place where the vendor brought in a machine that I had issues with. I didn't want to connect it as it was sent. (Me, the Prima Donna, & troublemaker)., so I just put in a transformer and ran a supply to their disconnect.

Here's the results after they did their thing.

Typical
I'll bet that if you discuss code issues with them you'll here the line " The NEC is for electricians only and since we are not electricians it does not apply to us."

Clearances?? Accessability??
Least someone installed the bollards to protect the compressor and transformer.

What's the story with/in the second pic?? I can't make out what it is? (Must be old age setting in)

Thanks
John

HotLine,
There's an old, existing 45 KVA transformer (originally installed correctly) under the rags.

nesparky — An end to that way of thinking may be to invite an OSHA representative to "translate" your message into something they might better understand—like some fines for their ill-advised handiwork.

If the OSHA rep bothers to show up. No one hurt seriously or killed yet.

All's well that ends well. The yearly insurance inspection for this (big) company gave them 2 options = fix it or else. The guys (vendor) pictured here didn't call me names any more. They couldn't fix it.

They took their toys and went home...S

I like the idea of calling OSHA, but completely agree they are out trying to nail bigger fines (injury, death - not pending death)

But how about the angle with the insurance companies? How would one go about that? Is it a waste of time and effort?
