Just Give Us The Power;
(And we'll take it from there!)

I revisited a place where the vendor brought in a machine that I had issues with. I didn't want to connect it as it was sent. (Me, the Prima Donna, & troublemaker)., so I just put in a transformer and ran a supply to their disconnect.

Here's the results after they did their thing.

Typical
I'll bet that if you discuss code issues with them you'll here the line " The NEC is for electricians only and since we are not electricians it does not apply to us." [Linked Image]

Clearances?? Accessability??
Least someone installed the bollards to protect the compressor and transformer.

What's the story with/in the second pic?? I can't make out what it is? (Must be old age setting in)

Thanks
John

HotLine,
There's an old, existing 45 KVA transformer (originally installed correctly) under the rags.

nesparky — An end to that way of thinking may be to invite an OSHA representative to "translate" your message into something they might better understand—like some fines for their ill-advised handiwork.

All's well that ends well. The yearly insurance inspection for this (big) company gave them 2 options = fix it or else. The guys (vendor) pictured here didn't call me names any more. They couldn't fix it.

They took their toys and went home...S

I like the idea of calling OSHA, but completely agree they are out trying to nail bigger fines (injury, death - not pending death)

But how about the angle with the insurance companies? How would one go about that? Is it a waste of time and effort?
