This is a photo (One of many!!!) that I took of electrical violations while I worked on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
I came across this website and think it is great that there are some genuine tradesmen out there. I have a few more that I will share in days to come.

Seeing that the paint materials could be flammable... and there is the risk of an electrical fire from an arc, you have a doubled risk here.

Besides the issues of hindering access to the equipment and the flammability of the materials, isn't there also a problem with impairing ventilation around the transformer as well?

Does the transformer itself limit access to whatever kind of panel is mounted above it?

How many times have we seen access ways
blocked by rubbish and other such things,
there are regulations in place here, to
combat this, but where does it end, eh?.

You know, I think that archetect & design schools must teach that the same closet MUST be used for utilities, laundry, janitorial, and general storage! After all, how many times do you see any other place where stuff can be 'put away?'
It doesn't seem to matter what the cost of the project is- this same crap turns up in everything from Trailer Bob's shack to custom marble mansions to public buildings. If the closet is large enough, it also becomes the maintenance office.
I'm at a loss for a solution.

If we could just get insurance companies to decide not to pay when code violations are involved in claims, we'd have it made...

Sometimes 15 minutes and a dumpster works.

For most of us though, if our employers don't support working clearances, it will continue to be a problem.
