Your article 'Water torture' (NCE last week) concludes with Safety facts - Safety innovations. But was it innovative for Peter South to be photographed and reproduced on your front cover with disregard for his safety in the limited space of tunnelling?
His helmet has an incorrectly adjusted head band, his tie appears to hang loosely down his shirt front and what is the point of wearing a high visibility vest inside-out thus negating its reective strips?
At least he was shown as wearing gloves. But we can only see his top half !
Having seen this cover picture I must be grateful that my clients insist on correct wearing and use of personal protective equipment before I, or anyone else can go anywhere near site working areas.
