    Any knocked up stuff and milk crates etc were only good for sitting on and eating your lunch. In fact, eating was stopped everywhere on a site i was working at except canteens and vans so you you will see some major changes on your return. This type was allowed on site when I gave it up 2 years ago. Surely some of our guys who work on sites will keep you right?

    I'm unsure sure where we stand with stilts these days but there is a stilts risk assessment form somewhere in our downloads section.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.

    I use the Youngman 600x600 platforms, although a Bam site I was on a couple of months ago said no hop ups at all. I have a Youngman Minimax scaffold which fits through door openings for use where H&S is OTT. Don't do much sitework for this reason (H&S Nazis), so more often than not, I use soakaway crates.
