    Lol the health n safety is a joke i seen a guy walking the plank over a staircase hole the other week (no stairs installed) on top of a pile of buckets wiping off ceiling angles while the health n safety bloke was in the house , turn a blind eye to some and others get shit for it and thrown off the site, Yes he was polish,,, So ye over the last 10 to 15 they've scammed millions out of honest working blokes like us just to line the goverments pockets again , Needless to say i think i'll give the sites a wide birth and let the foreign nationals get on with working fit a pittence. Its up to them if they want to work for a couple of quid an hour, Sorry blab over lol,

    Ive saw health and safety disregarded many times when it suited management on site, especially if it mucks up schedules and timetables.

    When will the day come when you need a card, just to apply for another card?

    My CSCS expires in 2013 and I've no plans to re-apply. With a risk versus reward view in mind, I can't understand the reasoning working on a site when you can generate much more earnings working privately without one of these cards.... for the time being anyway.

    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.
