    Default Hop ups


    A couple of summers ago I worked for a Scottish firm in England and was told all hop ups are banned in Scotland, I was wondering what the situation was Scottish law in England or just company law. Who is in the right, Them in Scotland or me WORKING in England for a Scottish firm. Any ideas chaps.

    If you're working in England then it be up to the site agent there. However its a health and safety directive so I'd be surprised if they were allowed in England either the H&SE covers the whole of the UK

    I think I was thinking along the lines that Scotland has its own set of laws and is there a juristiction here in England. Why not just one island & one law. That would be to simple I suppose . I have been on sites when they have been refused to use the hop ups that you showed. Crazy world we live in. Thanks for your input E.K.

    I think they said that and were asked to produce a certificate and could not. The hop up was a working tool and covered in the usual c.ap. ALAN
