  1. So we carrot crunchers outside the smoke?lol-but clearly from the pictures taken from Francis road-(LONDON )h&s has not filtered inside London!any one know what actually caused the collapse?seeing as the hse can’t be bothered to do there job-scaff mag

  2. I agree with reducing dropped/falling objects…but this is a bit much, these tool lanyards would got caught or snagged on objects ,depending where your working. Seems like they could be more of a hindrance than anything else…only my opinion!!.
