    If it is an accident, I don't want to see it. My confidence is at an all time high and next week I am working on 15 mtr columns

    It is so easy to make errors, I know with my own accident first question was did you do a risk assessment, answer no as the method statement is locked in the fitters container and I don't have access, second question was why were you doing the work, answer I did refuse it, but was told fitter busy I must do the job, I was lucky this was confirmed, we all know we should have any health and safety issue in writing, word of mouth is not good enough. And I had nothing in writing.

    Forman was asked to resign, and that resulted in another court case.

    However this is why we have method statements and risk assessments, if we did not put out the red flags when working on the railway we would get sacked, a train charging down the line flat out at 15 MPH can do a lot of damage, even at 5 MPH when a car fails to stop at the crossing it does a lot of damage upload_2024-5-18_14-38-46.png at least to the car, one small scratch on the engine. She said she didn't know the railway was still in use, and gave up driving.

    But it is deceptive, be it a crane or train they may go what seems to be slow, but it can do a lot of damage before it stops, in both cases lucky they were not derailed.

    I had guys come to house to fit double glazing, I offered the harness to them a few times, but they declined, had one fell, would I be liable, likely yes.

    Where I use to work, we had roof work done, and there they were prancing about with no harnesses, I went to boss and said have you seen them, as anyone else driving past can see them, should as a firm we not be insisting on wearing a harness, he agreed and they were told to come down. The boss actually thanked me, I was not sure I had done the right thing, I felt I was snitching on them, however had some thing gone wrong, with them in plain sight could not really say we did not know what was going on.
