Major equipment damage here caused by an overcurrent condition?

This image comes from the Southern California area, and was on a CD I exchanged with an Instructor some time ago, so I don't have the particulars here.

If they had shut it down, there wouldn't be any light to take the picture!

Regardless of the wording on the tape, I imagine there is substantial physical risk around the area. Likely the electrician taped it off and that's all he had.

Whew—my cubicle’s AOL access and coffee pot still work. I say the $60,000 I saved the plant on that silly thermographic scanning last month is so much the better!

Thomas: the yellow tape looks like it says "High Voltage", however it is upside-down and must therefore mean "Low voltage".
