What we do in life echoes in Eternity Congrats to the Winners! I haven’t ran into anything missing yet – I haven’t needed to do anything too strange 20122. If the ESA was truly about safety as their name suggests, the electrical code would be freely available online in its entirety, to ensure everyone has the knowledge to safely do electrical work, as they are legally entitled to as homeowners.
For bigger jobs, I’d just hire an electrician anyway. That costs money to develop, produce, package, etc.
It’s just a way to extort cash. Whether someone should be ‘dabbling’ or not is besides the point – that is what permits and inspections are for. You shouldn’t have to buy an aftermarket product because it’s easier than the official way. Yet, they charge absurd amounts to view it, probably in the interest of electrical unions – no homeowner is going to pay that much when they can just cods an electrician to do a one hour job for less.
Could you imagine if you had to pay hundreds of dollars to read the laws of our country?
But if it was truly about safety, they’d post a PDF freely online, as it costs them nothing to do so. Why is this law hidden behind a pay wall, while every other one is free and open?

It should be the other way around, the full law which it essentially is should be free to all, and if you want to pay for a “for dummies” version that summarizes it, then you pay for that convenience. I’m trying to do it right, keep things on a budget, and learn at the same time.
I fully understand and support charging for a printed safery of the code. It is, however, incomplete and there are a lot of things the book does not cover that are good to know. Why would anyone possibly need to know every tiny nuance of the law about driving on our highways? I reference this book as well.
If they actually cared, they’d make it free online just like the building code. After all, a ton of effort went into writing those.
Otherwise, hire a lawyer! I also picked this up, great book if you can get past the writers terrible cheesy sense of humor. I’m saying if their sole interest is SAFETY, as they suggest, they would want everyone to be as informed as possible, and not put up barriers to that knowledge. The electrical safety code is law in Ontario. Yep, that shows what BS it is. Sort by Author Post time Ascending Descending. I’m not saying electricians should never be used, they provide a great electrkcal and are often required.
I’d say it’s far more dangerous for someone to dabble without knowing anything of what the rules and standards are, no? Display posts from previous:
