i think its just the nature of the beast we know what this job will do to us, although with better machinery its always a good idea to get equipment in to save us. This is harder for the smaller companies i guess. Maybe its not my place to say having only been in the industry for nearly 7 years but i see what you mean although its quite funny been doing HGV class 1 all last week and my back is starting to ache and i know once back to work it will be all good

As my Grandma used too say "hard work never killed anyone, but it can make you a funny shape" LOL!!!

In the last 5 years they have threatened all sorts, and most of it has not happened.

 

If you employ a climber you are already putting your kneck on the line, thats why I do all my own climbing.

 

But as a self employed climber very little has changed in the last 5 years, in real terms.

 

And, IMO, as this recession/depression bites they are not going to risk jobs by making any real changes.
