A contractor has a situation where he called our company (inspection company)to help him lay out a service installation in an existing service room.

We discussed some stuff, but needed to see inside the main service switchboard, which meant taking the cover off of the 480/277v gear. They had no PPE with them, so I told them I would gladly come back and take a look when they provided all of us with the proper PPE that is necessary. They didn't get too upset, but I heard through the grapevine that they were upset at the time delay it is causing. I see this as a necessary lession to start pushing in our industry, what do you think?
