Handyman special

3047 27
Wasnt sure if there is a thread for this but i just wanted to share some of the handyman work ive come accross in the past few days. Wendys hired my company to fix electrical issues in 53 stores. Theyve had a handyman doing all their electrical work for years until he killed himself working on a live circuit. Now theyve been forced to hire a licensed contractor. Sad story but when are people going to start respecting electricity?? People who arent electricians should not be messing with it. Especially on commercial equipment. Here are a few from the A/C unit on the roof.

Is using conduit common? Around here its all teck cables. Don't recall seeing any conduit connections yet.

I had a job a bit ago, went up on the roof to install some control units, about 5am in the morning, layed a panel flat on the roof , a gust of wind came along lifted the panel up and rolled it across the roof, thought it was going to fly off the mall roof. Pouring rain in the face :(

When sun came up looked up on the upper roof and an entire Unit blew over onto its side, still running. Was close to severing the gas line and power cable. The store was wondering why their roof was leaking.

uh, yeah no kidding. what i meant was that this guy probably knew how fatal electricity can be if he's doing commercial installations.
Eh, he was doing things he was not qualified to do and eventually paid the ultimate price for it.

I think the company that hired him should face legal action for it.
