London Death Wish

A reader from London sent us a note yesterday after two men arrived at the building opposite his premises and proceeded to unload and then use a six metre ladder to climb up onto the fragile roof.

Once on the roof one of the men walked over it, one assumes inspecting it?, without using any form of crawl board or method of spreading his weight. This in spite of the fact that it was made from light weight roofing panels that are prone to give way under a mans weight.

Our man stands in the middle of the roof without a care in the world while risking a 7m drop to a concrete floor

Seeing the danger our reader and his employees went over and offered the free use of their Niftylift HR21 which was standing outside in full view only metres away from the job, only to be told: "We're OK we are only going to be a minute or two"

This in spite of the fact that falls through roofing panels is one of, if not the most common causes of fatalities and serious injury from falls at height. Some people will never learn!
