I usually don't "fink", but I'm so disturbed that I think I need to, now.

An electrical contractor that does the lighting maintenance for our landlord sent out a guy with 1 year's experience.
They sent him with the same aluminum ladder that I saw here: www.electrical-contractor.netubb/forum5/html/000165.html

The guy came into our office (seeing that we were atually a real electrical contractor) and asked for an application.

The company in question has a bad record, although they claim to be a "family company" in their ads.

Should I call CALOSHA? ghostbusters?
The worker's reasoning was that he has a family, and wants them to have a nice Christmas.
Dead Dad ain't a good Christmas...S
And I'm so darn mad I could spit.

If this EC is sending out a 1st year worker, or any worker for that matter with aluminum ladders, I would call OSHA for a little talk with the EC, especially since they have existing situations with their license.
No persons life is worth any value, just to get the job done.
I would be curious to see what documentation they can show on this man's training.

Broom Pusher and
Scott (electure);

a "family company" in their ads.

Curious,... Does this Company's initials happen to be MBE or QOE?

I had to edit the first post because I was so furious.
I think we'll probably "take the fellow under our wing", so to speak.
He seems really sincere in his wishes for working in the trade. Hope a shovel fits his hand well.
I'm going to try a call to the contractor first, and depending on the resultant attitude (if he starts telling me to mind my own business, and cussin' me out like before) go from there.
Aahh, you've seen for this kind of thing around town as well.
This is a company with "D". You might check your Pennysaver.
