  2. What's people's views on going as a subbie? If I earn £120 per day employed with all the benefits and security is it worth subbing for £150/160 per day? I haven't been self employed in this industry before but am getting offered days all the time any advice or your personal experience would be useful. Thanks peeps.

    Thanks for the reply. The kit is well maintained and from someone I trust I'll check to see if he has receipts before buying though. 👍🏻

    O k. That's good to know. I've never bought second hand before so thought it was worth checking first. I'll just have to take copies of the receipts. Thank you

    Hi guys, a friend of mine is selling his climbing kit, it doesn't have an up to date loler examination and he didn't take any paperwork of the previous tests when he left his last company. So question is can I just take it for a test without the documented history? When an inspector gets a kit do they just look at the kit as is or do they need the history? Thanks.

    He is behind on inspections so am not accepting employment with his firm.

    The worrying thing is that he has admitted to not keeping up with the loler inspections.

    Thanks for your input everybody. I have decided not to work for the company in question as the owner admitted to me that he is behind on the inspections as he knows he is going to have to condemn a lot of kit as he has no record of its history and it will cost a lot of money. I dont actually have a problem with in house inspections as long as it is done properly and up to date. Thanks again. K.

    Hi everyone i was wondering what peoples thoughts on company owners being the Loler tester for their staff? I think it could be a conflict of interest, has anyone got any views please?
