Going back in time

A reader in the London area sent some photos taken a couple of weeks ago on a site in Barnes, South West London where they were pouring concrete.

In his words: 'Back to the 70's/80's - this site is in Barnes s/w London, a definite death wish a total disregard to any health & safety measures.'

Vertikal Comment

With all the talk and safety awards that the construction industry hands out, here we are in London, capital of the most safety conscious country in the world – if you listen to major contractors – in 2012 and this contractor and his men appear totally oblivious to working at height regulation or the risks involved in working in this way. It is mind boggling!
