    Responsibility

    I have a question regarding somthing i was reading in an old post i was reading called inspection report. So my question is when you install say a pulg point/s and or extra light/s and issue the COC,do you (your coc) take responsibility for the alterations only or the whole installation as some one said in that post? OHS Act 11: only registered person may issue a coc after having himself/herself by means of inspection and testing. Then either 11a,11b or 11c is applicable. In this case its 11c an alteration on a installation wich exists prior to the publication of the current addition of the OHS Act. Section 3 on CoC you state the coc covers the alteration/s you made and section 4 comments of parts not covered by this report state that the rest of installation complies with section5 of sans10142 general safety principels. Now if something happens to someone on the part of installation your coc does not cover who is liable? Because there is lots of DIY customers adding to the installation because its cheaper and does not need a coc because he is not selling his house soon and he thinks your coc would cover everything. So who is liable? Oh an just thank to all on this forum an all posts on this forum, lots of great information sharing going on and lots of knowledge sharing. Thanks

    It can be about what you do, but clearly you don't do this - its def not about the question

    So if you are a question about ....... say prostitution or frakking in the karoo.... are you going to change your "nick" everyime ?

    wow, such hostility....

    In most cases, especially on a business forum, someone's nick indicates a representation of their company / business / background.

    Seriously?
    You have more faith in Eskom than I have, I'm afraid.

    And for clarity, that's the enterprise - not the person behind the TFSA username

    @ Eskom - I'd love to try to stop the abuse you're copping as a result of your chosen handle. Unfortunately it seems the river of vitriol that seems to flow in Eskom (the enterprise)'s direction seems to flow deep and strong.

    If you ever want to pick another username, just let me know.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Theoretically the user or lessor. It wouldn't surprise me though if there wasn't a chase after the IE.

    Again the user or lessor. But from my experience you can rest assured the IE is going to be pressed to prove his/her innocence and that changes had been effected.

    uuummm I don't think it is abuse he is copping - I think it is retaliation to this:

    Why the hell is your nick softdux?
    so that is the reason for the nick so are you satisfied?
    So perhaps Dave you should not always stick up for the noobie ......

    If noobies say cocky little comments like this, then they will get answers like ours !
