It's time to confess. I have an exported earth (to a shed/workshop) 15m from CU in my garden. T&E run overhead. From 20A MCB to mini shed consumer unit (RCD @ both ends)

Why is this bad?

Am I going to die from this?

I have an exported earth (NO: O) (to a shed(take note, admin!)/workshop) 15m from CU in my garden. (EH! Why have you got a CU in your garden?) T&E run overhead. From 20A MCB to mini shed (the shed where you keep your mini is a "garage") consumer unit (RCD @ both ends)

Then you`re a Very naughty boy.

Why is this bad?

OMG.......1 moment please.

Have you got any extraneous conductive parts in the shed making a nice potential path back to earth?

or is it a reasonably well insulated wood stucture...

mounted on beams with NO direct contact to earth?

Ah. Of course m8. :x

And, since then, he`s also brought plastic gloves into the equation.

I see steptoe`s re-reading the "exported" thread - stand by for his input.

Though, if our resident vet has covered ALL his extremities with plastic / rubber, and is the "trained person" who will supervise any persons in the shed - he MAY be ok:O:O:O

Then again - he may be somewhat kinky:^O:^O:^O:^O:^O
