Dan Dorset, an engineer who works for Raincott, had been looking forward to his upcoming vacation for weeks. When instillation of of some equipment for on of his employer's customers runs longer then originally anticipated, an engineer working for the customer, Jerry, says that can finish the installation of the equipment on his own. Due several recent accidents that were directly traceable to failure to follow proper installation procedures, it is now Riancott's policy to send one of its engineers to supervise all installations. Dan is confident that Jerry is capable to supervise the installation of the remaining equipment. What should he do?
