Wrong footed

Recommended Posts

I was at the front of a corner house working away and an old boy shouts "do you want anymore work" So I said "No thanks" then he started to carry on walking. :D

The best bit for me was the main contractor got a £10,000 fine. I bet he did not see that coming :laugh:

That's the problem as everybody wants to do it as cheap as they can to win work with disregard to H&S. The firm that employed that subcontrator was accountable for his actions also has a duty of care for his safety also the other guy that was footing the ladder so they should have costed the job in for scaffolding etc. That £10,000 fine will make them think in future for sure. :rolleyes:

It all gets you there cnc. If ever you get the chance to sup a pint of jaipur then go for it.....one of the best ipas around (Brewed in bakewell). I have been sampling my nettle beer tonight. Very very tasty and, of course, i added more sugar than recommended...to provide more oomph!. It tastes like an alcoholic elderflower beer.

 

Didnt get a stitch of work done today because of the weather...tomorrow looks bad too. At least the break allows me to recharge....and sort me little brewery out lol
