    Yup, did a bit of training to do steel stuff well. Ali towers are all good and well for light work but steel is better. I used to tie mine in too, not just angle it

    When we had a spell of fitting solar PV to roofs a few years ago, my brother sent me on a "Safe working at heights" course in Chesterfield. After I got back he asked me how I got on. I told him it all went a bit over my head. He chucked a wobbler saying that sending me on the course was money down the drain. That's when I learned that my brother had no discernible sense of humour

    I've been on a few courses over the years, and they are invariably cack - you always get some smartarses who really should be on a more advanced course but would rather slum it with the thicko's diverting the tutor with questions that mean nothing to the rest of us. Still, always came away with a nice travel mug and woolly hat though
    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    Yup only did one course and that was for dangerous goods.
    Scaffolding, I just worked with a team for a while and they showed me the main tricks.
    I wasn't going to be building stuff for lots of workers, just my squad. Never had any issues, but probably couldn't get away with that now. Safety rules now are a farce.

    These days my brother works 3 days a week for British Gas, and their safety procedures and PPE is so over the top, no wonder they are stupidly expensive - someone has to pay for all that nonsense. If I adhered to that level of health and safety, my customers couldn't afford me and would instead go to someone who doesn't mind hanging from gutters by their fingertips

    Really? We've been with them for years (for gas and leccy) and *ultimately* always found them the cheapest, that is if you go through comparison sites. When we get their renewal quote, it's always extortionate, so we simply go onto the comparison sites, look for the best deal, and inevitably British Gas end up supplying it, and subsequently we save around 100 on the renewal quote.

    Don't ask my how!
