Is that tape wrapped around the lower half of the bakelite shell of the lampholder?
At least it's not one of those awful paper-lined metal shell sockets....where you get a nice shock after the paper gets rotted away from the heat of the lightbulb. Why haven't they been supplanted by Bakelite shells yet?
I doubt the heat coming from those pipes is any good for the rubber (or is it plastic?) zip cord there....

WA State requires anybody doing anything more than changing a light bulb to be licensed as a journeyman or ; for residential a residential maintenance electrician ; for commercial a commercial maintenance electrician. Good example of why.

There's a company not to far from here that 'trains' people how to replace fuses on their production equipment. These people are not electricians. There's an extra set of fuses in the control cabinets for spares. If they pop more than two then they are 'trained' to call the electricians. Sounds like they have a motor loading/sizing problem.
Isn't this just a lawsuit waiting to happen.
Anybody else experienced this kind of 'training'.

I have seen this kind of work in our plant before. After looking in to it we find out that most of the time this light was put in by a mechanic or plumber. They just don't get it about wiring things to code! The plant where I work pre-tests Electricians prior to hire on code, reading, drwaings, and troubleshooting. They do not test us or require us to keep up to date on code rules. Most of us do it on our own. One problem that we have is so many so called sparky's around the plant, I do this at home, attitude all the time.
