This is mainly a curiosity Q...
Saw an excavating outfit laying 3" and 4" electrical grade conduit with sweeps along the highway. Plus the service laterals are laid in by excavtors at the "big job" *cough* Greenbrier *cough*
. They even install the sweep and riser (sched 80, sometimes...) in most of the jobs (we'll do our own, thanks...)
My questions are:
When is work considered "electrical work"?
Can non-electrician sub-contractors do the trenching?
... lay the conduit? (number of bends, proper gluing, arranging to drain, etc. in question here)
...place the pull rope?
...pull the wire?
Just where is the "line" that seperates electrical work from work that doesn't require electrical licensing?
I'm sure this differs by location, so just give me what the standard is in your area, and any codes, rules or standards that you may be aware of...
Allow me to add that, for sake of argument, let's ignore the fact that the PoCo doesn't fall under the same rules, and pretend that I'm talking sub-feeders (post meter feeders)...
PS: No, I'm not going tattle or "become a trouble maker" as it was so eloquently put to me today...
