I've never come close to it either. And yet people do fall off.

The one that scared me was watching a thatcher moving a ladder without
bothering to climb down first.

You need that on a roof because of the frozen turds that come from the
planes.

goggles

So you can't see what you're doing when they steam up. A real H & S
hazard on a roof.

and climbing harness,

Dangerous things on a roof ladder. Very dangerous.

where he fastened it to, you can see the brick dust where he drilled the
brackets, so I would expect to see more dust if he'd drilled a ring to
secure his ladder (always a good idea)


Anyone used to ladder work will never allow the ladder to get anywhere

They were short of bricks so the foreman said, "Just bung a low roof on it."

Why would "a new wideband LNB" be needed? How is it different to what was there previously?

As for the ladder...maybe it is for private work?
