Just had this 2 sided A5 advert delivered from a local company covering his company services, namely a Roof and Gutter clearance.

Now I spotted this quite major point in the image and wondered if you were in the same position you would have let this point go to press.

Now with my Construction Site Management I have spotted the flaw almost straight away, and it has to be said that fair play to the lad on the roof getting geared up in line with current H&S Working at Height regs.

I'll leave it with you to critique the scene, I’ve just blotted out any contact details just in case it infringes any naming and shaming.

I would guess that it is because he's tied himself off to the chimney?

The length of his safety line is longer than the distance to the ground.

Basically rendering it useless.

Is that it?

hehe

If that trade is picking up people off the floor with broken bits - yes.

I know this isn't in debate, but I personally think dirty tiles look better than clean tiles. Several houses around where my parents live have had this work done, and it looks awful in comparison to the rest of the neighbourhood. It makes me think 'Spanish villa', imho ...

I think thats it.

But last time i was in a H&S class I remember something along the lines of you have to wear an arrestor line above 5m but they only work if you fall from 8m or more.

That was the result of me not re-sizing the scan.

Is it because they are spraying all the crap off the roof onto the neighbours house?
