I can only comment about the UK, as that is where I work.

In the UK, you are legally bound to advise anyone who you see doing
something unsafe to stop and not continue. If they refuse to do their job
safely you are legally bound to "whistle blow" to your boss. If you do not
do this you are just as guilty as the offending person and just as liable.

>Luckily I'm not qualified to comment to the powers that be on this.
I doubt that comment would stand up in a UK court.

>Still the company is covered, if some catastrophe happens after all
>it has a label to say it's safe right?
Wrong, I'm afraid. If you are employed by the company, and you know the job
is not being done correctly, you are duty bound to report them. My advise
would be to shop 'em.

All the best...Mike.

Does that apply to MP's? ;)

Sadly nothing applies to MPs.

All the best...Mike.

With due respect to the 2 or 3 Australians on this board, I have to
say Mike, that you obviously haven't seen the Oz attitude to this
type of thing - maybe as a foreigner I'm more likely to notice.

My last place in the UK it took 4 people and 2 days to test every
piece of equipment.

This electrician is a contractor, and frankly the attitude is, You
(that's me) don't possess a Restricted Electrical Licence, so you
don't know what you're talking about, along with 'what the eye don't
see, the heart don't grieve'.

Strangely enough the parent company is a UK one, think mobile phone
base station diplexor/filter manufacturer, and the MD is also
English, but when in Rome etc.

I won't bore with my rant about the earthing standard by a qualified
sparky in my house.

I have always been a few Dendrites short of an Axon and believe me it
shows.

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright
until they speak!
