It's a bit much to describe Trafalgar Square as abandoned Jim.......it's 
rolling on the NO2 discarded canisters too that's a problem. As for the dog 
mess it's as much a problem in rear gardens as the high street.......but then 
you have to walk back through the dog owner's house....

One of the albeit rare delights of surveying abandoned sites in London is 
discarded hypodermic needles - always wear stout boots!
I s'pose the worse risk you encounter Tim is tripping over a stale Cornish 
pastie?

Rupert,

I once asked on some arb forum whether anybody had had any injury while 
surveying that would have been prevented by safety boots.  The long list of 
responses telling me of spikes through the boots, surveyors falling over this 
and that, and this and that falling over surveyors, well, it all quite took 
me aback.

After this the representative from a large engineering firm explained that 
one surveyor had fallen, bashed his head and died.  This all persuaded me to 
just get on with the RA, RAMS and invest in some new boots.  

I'm still not convinced by the safety helmet with a 4-point chin strap though.

Best regards,

Dear Tin, Jonathan, and Philip,

Many thanks!

Goddam safety Nazis - I can understand the need for a health and safety 
policy if when it's carrying at work; but for a person bimbling around 
looking at a bunch of trees and occasionally tapping them is it really 
necessary?

Atb

Rupert
