    Thai Health and Safety, last time I was in Surin I walked in Mrs place only to find her on her tip-toes on a tall stool, stretching with a bamboo grass broom trying to reach a cobweb, she stands at a massive 4ft 11ins and did nt want to startle her, when she knew I was there she got down, and she knew what was coming next...
    "What should you be doing " her answer "Using steps" , "What should you NOT be doing" her answer "Standing on the stool" .... " With out saying A) was only one or B) it will only take a few seconds, can you explain you're actions ?" No answer, with that off to the Market to buy a longer grass broom that can reach the ceiling from floor level, normally we lend steps from the builder round the corner when needed, first thing we talked about when she got the tall stool was NOT using it to stand on, it was a "Kill that Khmer" moment, which sometimes gets replied to with "Kill you first" on this occasion she just admitted she was in the wrong. She has taken some H&S courses, so she knows its wrong, unbelievable Jeff...

    I would say buy her a set of steps - they're not expensive but.......... last time over I needed some and the builder's set were convenient - mine were downstairs. I could not believe the quality - really thin and wobbly, I didn't feel safe on them at all so went for mine.

    'Mine' are not actually steps - they're one of those combination folding ladder things. They are a carbon copy of some I have in the UK (same brand I think), only thinner. Not as thin as the builder's steps though.

    I find that a lot - very hard to find decent quality equipment - most stockists only seem to offer cheap crap. Its probably available in Bangkok but I've ended up taking a lot of stuff over from the UK.

    She would normally use the builders (so do I) and they are ok,and have locking arms (cant fold in) I have bought some but too big for the car they stay in her sisters garage, need another sisters pick up to transport them, one of the first things I bought for the Condo in BKK was steps for her, Falls from Height to be avoided.

    After a bit of a go with the builder on Line and me telling him that if he didn't want the work give me my plans and I will find someone else and Ohm telling him that she wanted the house built in 4 months as he stated and not 4 years (I don't know where she gets the sarcasm from!) We have more progress

    Safe Systems of Work ? Reading the Occupational Health and Safety Bureau / Ministry of Labour: Occupational Safety and Health Thailand, 2018 and their campaign / vision "Master-plan 2017 / 2021", I feel they have their work cut out, an extract : "The 2nd National Master Plan on Occupational Safety,Health and Environment (2017–2021)Vision“Strives to build-up preventive culture to promote safety and health of workers”Mission1. Establish and develop preventive or promotional measures on occupationalsafety and health (OSH);2. Promote labour protection in all sectors on the issues of workers’ rights,duties regarding occupational safety and health, to enhance their safety and health at work;3. Create and develop occupational safety and health network andcollaboration among all relevant sectors;4. Develop mechanisms for the administration and operation of occupationalsafety and health;5. Monitor, control and follow-up occupational safety and health issues".
    Still the number one OSH cause of death = Falls from Height, see the scaffolding and guy on the roof, it is easy to see why.

    This is from Surin a few years ago
    11150494_10205788621048330_2848609343814215173_n.jpg
    I kept hearing dull thuds outside, so I went out to see what it was, only to find my youngest sister in law jumping around the top of a coconut tree cutting coconuts off with a very sharp machete (No Ladder at the time) " What are you doing up there ?" Coconuts was the reply " Yes I see that, I mean how did you get up there, jumping round like a monkey?" silence " Well " silence " What is in the garage ?" Ladders was the reply "Why do I not see ladders?" at this point the nephew brought the ladders and put them up for her to get down, so down she comes protesting how many times she's climbed the coconut trees to be met with rolling eyes from me "Im not bothered how many times, I am bothered you use ladders that are for this job, you know I will complain and you know its dangerous dont you?" yeah I know she said .

    Look on the bright side, no compensation payments.

    A few years ago when getting one of our apartment blocks built, a worker fell from the first floor, narrowly missing some railings. Wife took him to local hospital, paid 500 baht for his treatment, then took him home.
    A couple of days later he hobbled back, wife kicked him out, said he was no good as a worker.

    Following this build with interest, Wayne. Looking good! As a matter of interest, mate, how far down / deep did you go with your footings / foundation?
