He starts by saying an alternative to rope and harness

In my opinion there is NO safe alternative to rope and harness

Roof ladders are about as safe as you can get without but anything that you are not physically connected to you can fall off

Crazy bleedin yanks

When all this type of gear is available to them why do they not use it??

Can't be ignorance as if in the trade surely they would have to know this stuff

Natural selection i suppose

Back to the darwin awards again

I still would use my proper climbing gear as i trust that 100%

Am i wrong in my interpretation of the law

I thought it was the same as jcb and 360s etc

If personal use no licence/training/ppe needed to hire/use one but if doing a job for someone then you do need one

Is that not the same if on your own roof or am i wrong?

I think some of these inventions are aimed at homeowners wanting to get on their own roofs etc

 

Tell me if i am barking up the wrong tree

Even if you are self employed you are still breaking the law by not following the working at height directive.

 

DIYers can do what they like on their own properties though :D
