At one time or another we've all run across a situation where someone was completing a task in an unsafe manner. Did you happen to snap a photo of this unsafe act? If so, please share it with us in this discussion thread. We can certainly all learn something from sharing these types of images with each other.

I have no pictures to share, but I do have a comment. It deals with the neatness and clutter of the jobsite. Materals should be placed as close to the work site as practicable and neatly stored. Construction debris should not clutter the area, but be moved out of the way.

A cluttered work site is a dangerous work site, as tripping hazards exist. I've seen a worker break his ankle by stumbling over debris left in the work path. Keep your work site neat and clean even if you think it's too much trouble.

So how do I upload a picture?

The other day I was asked to look at some wiring on some pole lights. The pole lights were 480V single phase. The contractor installed 277V LED type fixture. Contractor informed customer of the problem and estimate of fix. I'm being told this was done in house. NEC 250.119 Ground was used as neutral conductor. What should have been done and what I did was to phase the unused conductor of the 480V single phase white and use it as the neutral.
