A builder was prosecuted, July, by the HSE after not only being found working on an unsafe scaffold but also having his ten year old son on the scaffold with him. His son was seen shimmying along a narrow plank on the scaffolding, gripping to the frame to prevent him falling, as he made his way towards the top of a ladder where his dad was waiting for him. The ladder was not tall enough to reach the lowest working platform on the scaffolding - missing it by around 30cm. The builder therefore had to hold his son's ankles and place his feet onto the rungs of the ladder to make sure he did not fall or miss his footing.
There's a long list of issues with the scaffold so its an interesting approach to parenting shall we say.
