    A lot really, it's surprising what there is to know that people don't know! Especially if the worst happens and you got taken to court and what you had to prove to make sure you are innocent and you have everything in place etc etc

    OK let's see then, just say for some reason that you ladders did slip or something that caused you to fall off and ladders hit some public. One thong they would ask for is the ladder inspection documents for the last year, and ask to see the ladder inspection tags that's ment to be on every ladder you use and then the ladder training certificate.

    Could you provide all those?

    its one of those things thats they say isnt 100% legal that you have to have it to use ladders, and if they ask for it then you have to provide it, but its one of those things that they would look at to try and get out of paying out of the insurance etc because you are using equipment that you are not trained to use, ladders are not checked to make sure they are safe to use,
    it the same for the water fed pole to, if you droped that on someone they will look at to see if you have all the warning signs in place and training for that too etc.
