    Be careful what step you get as some are designed for systems with 500 centres. Best one out there IMO is the COMBISAFE. It can be used for systems and T+F. Been some bad feed back regarding these things as the potential is to fall off them. Funny that a scaff will happily go down a 21ft dropper but all of a sudden screams danger danger when he's asked to use a step.

    was a long running debate on this for a while,since the inventor of the step was a nasc director.in whose interests it was to sell. slipped in to must use catagory. probly quite a useful tool tho never used one,or seen one used.

    Yeh I know but remember you don't have to use the step to install what is effectively an advanced guardrail system. You can use the half lift or short lift system to achieve same results. Lots of debate about their safety from the lads ie slippery when wet and you can still come off them. Picture this, big hairy assed scaff walks into the gaffers office " Boss I'm happy to slide down a long and onto a T piece 200ft up but Boss I'm just not sure about that dodgy wee step thing" rofpmsl

    Ahh amigo, theres a difference between a scaff with experience doing a job in front of them.( dropper) And some muppet telling you you must use a tool to put the next lift up.
    seriously,does the job stop, if you aint got one.

    I'm pretty sure they are just trying to show means of putting in an advanced guardrail and making life safer for us, however would the job stop ??? got to get it started first lol
