However, I have come across some which have vent holes big enough to get fingers in so beware!
Just thinking aloud, with devices such as computers and servers, would it be possible to do some sort of continuity test between the case and a nearby earth, to test the integrity of the earth wire, without unplugging it?

Our written procedures allow for this and we add a note to the test record that it has undergone 'in-situ visual and earth'.
