A couple of weeks ago, I was up at the Rock helping Pete Brooks with the work on the 40". At that time, many extension cords were being used, some with metal electrical boxes at the end. I inquired if all the electrical service to the scopes and outlets was ground faulted either via ground fault outlets or ground fault breakers. I could see that the outlets were not ground faulted, so I assumed the breakers were ground faulted.
.... I was sort of shocked (no pun intended) to find out the breakers were not ground faulted. This is an unacceptable safety risk. Doing electrial work around a piece of equipment that is 80% metal (mount, scope, control boxes), in a dome that is metal, with wires and motors mounted on it, is asking for big trouble. Add in the fact that the floors might be wet from leaks (I've seen this), and the fact that often people are working alone, quite frankly, scares the heck out of me.
Same for all the outlets throughout the complex. This entire complex should provide ground faulted electric straight from the breakers.
Can we get ground fault breakers put in at Pulpit, and really, at SM as well? In this day and age, it is unacceptable to have any electrical service that provides electric to the outdoors, or to areas where active electrical work is being done, not be ground faulted.
