Gent's, a man comes to us with a problem, so we tell him to quit his job, (affecting his personal livelyhood) and go on to insult his personal conscience and values. That is NOT right! Neither one is a realistic solution to the problem.
As for Licensing in all states, I don't know...
I have my own license.... Any work I do under that license, I am responsable for. Like-wise any work do by an an employee, I am responsable for.
I closed shop, and went back to work for someone else. I still have my license, but any work I do as an employee under the companies license, they are responsable for.
In a simular situation years ago, I had a boss that wanted me to do some custom control work for a tricked out table. It was sunken into the floor, and raised up and down using hydraulics. The guy doing the hydraulics was using dual acting cylinders, with pumps and cylindrs rated at 20,000lbs, with no blow outs, or limiters. The control diagram had no safety devices. I refused to hook it up and the BOSS had a fit. Said, "Do you want me to get someone else to do it?!"
I told him, "Look these people have small kids in the house, if they chop off their legs in this thing it's all YOU! The only way I'll do it is if it's safe!" After some more arguement he agreed. We made the hydro guy put limiters and blow-outs in, and we put in auto-reverse and stop devices in the controls via touch tape contacts and eyes, and a release under the table, and restricted access via keypad.
Cost the customer a fortune.... But it was as safe as we could possibley get it.
Anyway, it was learning experiance, I thought I'd share.
If the Inspector doesn't know, tell him!
If the Owner doesn't know, tell him.
If the Boss doesn't care tell him...
And if you can't take the TV out of the tub space. Take the tub space away from the TV. (Like I suggested earlier)
Or let this guy watch TV via mirrors, from a safe distance. Get creative with it....
