    What I find amazing is the difference in electrical standards. If this was Australia he would have had to use the breaker at the top to isolate the whole board before touching anything, he would have had to use electrical gloves, test everything for zero faults, then do earth fault loop impedance tests, insulation tests, blah blah blah blah blah. In Canada though they just wire it up, two cross phases, no earth (or was the shield earth?), ignored 3rd phase, and not even bother with a modern magnetic RCD or anything. Just screw it in and flick it on.

    Using uninsulated tools in a live panel with no gloves and no safety glasses, not the brightest. Or maybe the brightest, when they both get arc flashed.

We have to list our Siemens for auction but sometimes we get too many Siemens and we just get like....drowned in Siemens. Its really a messy situation to be in.

      Dude. It's not only about the voltage but also how many Amperes is running through the cable.
