New SG4:YOU user Guide (http://www.nasc.org.uk/NASC_news/sg4you)

Not trying to be contentious here, but wtf? How handy is it to have a

"The user guide is a pocket sized booklet designed to be an aide memoir for site worker involved with scaffolding."

Is it suggesting that when half way up a tower block of scaffolding, you may forget what you need to be doing to stay safe, so you stop, get your handy pocket sized book out, have a quick looksee, say "ahh thats what I was doing wronggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh....."?

Am I missing the point?

You want to see the size of the booklet that tells you how to put a harness on which we got supplied with our harnesses, you need a big pocket for that.......

Hi Bettertax, to be honest I think you might be missing the point a wee bit. I think the point of the pocket guide is to allow employers to train their men in the safe use of the equipment and plan their work in advance to try and avoid balancing 30 feet in the air on a 2" tube trying to dig something out your pocket wondering where it all went wrong. Another good point to the pocket book is the men don't have to take the gaffer's or **** safety men's word for anything if they have the correct information to hand, and as we all know information is king.......well, that and cash.:embarrest:

there's an even better TG20 one, half a dozen pages of excellent information, gets straight to the point and simple for us scaffs to comprehend.
the rest we don't need:nuts::nuts::nuts:

Your right Celticbhoy. I used to attend NASC meetings in the South West for a Bristol company. They don't have a F***ING CLUE ABOUT THE REAL WORLD.
Last time I went I enjoyed telling the 9 guys around the table that in my opinion they were all hoping that by being on a NASC 'committee' they might stand a chance of getting a MBE or whatever for 'services to the safety industry'.

and the best thing of all about these little books is the front pages are generally ideal roach material, which is very handy, if you have your handy pocket sized book in your pocket when you looking for summit handy at toke time :nuts:

but when arguing with health an safety men an managers, it doesnt look good when you prove them wrong ,by presenting them with proof inside a booklet with half front cover an quarter of back cover missing lol:toung:

The plant I'm working on have a system called SOR (safety observation report) which your supposed to fill in if you see something unsafe, All the time I've been there I've never filled one in and the safety man tells me I should. Last week they won an award for 4 million hours non lost time and he was chuffed with himself, so I told him that was the reason I never wasted his time by filling in SOR's cause there was never anything unsafe. He did'nt know if I was praising him or slagging him.
