Good thing there's a trash skip there in that next-to-last picture.

If the ladder starts to fall sideways, just steer it to the left and let the bags of putrid garbage break your fall.

Puts a whole new meaning to the term "WASTE MANAGEMENT" (The owners of the garbage bin). [Linked Image]

Some Sort of New Safety Protocol?

Joe,

I'm typically just a lurker on ECN because I'm an unlicensed, homeowner electrician. Yeah - one of those DIY'ers that most professional sparkys get the shudders over.

Still, the only red tag I ever got was for Fire-stop 'cuz I didn't know about it. My wiring is neat, labeled and properly installed to the point of torquing terminals.

I guarantee that you'd rather work in any panels I've installed rather our old main service panel.

Had I known about ECN, I would have taken a picture of that old rat's nest!

Anyway, I took this picture at a restaurant near where I live. I had my camera on max zoom, but was across the brook in their parking lot. If you look you can see conduit, a j-box and tools on the wall.

I especially like the "grounded for safety aluminum ladder".

Is that how we're supposed to work?? [Linked Image]

Don't forget the "toothpick" ladder.

I wish I had taken my camera with me today. What did I see at a gas station around the corner? A step ladder with another ladder shoved between the top of it and the top step. The workers seemed to be replacing a sign. They had a nice looking crane on a truck that they used to hoist up the sign. Maybe they're still saving up for a bucket truck?
