  9. Inconsistent LOLER inspections.

    Its all subjective. The point is the kit is inspected by a competent person. Opinion on wear and tear differ. The main issue is in the even of an accident your inspections are scrutinized, this where the the **** can hit the fan. As an inspector myself I take the view that if Im happy to climb on it its safe to pass ( with the exception of modified kit as mentioned in previous posts) Some inspectors can be over zealous especially newly qualified ones or those who have never climbed.
