It’s safe to say that the health and safety rules have been ignored somewhat on this building site.
A ladder balanced on an open door and a pallet propped up with bricks and sand is all that was needed for this brickie to get on with his work in Camberwell, London.
The builder was balanced on top of the ladder with the bucket whilst his workmate was doing his best below not to let him fall.
Techno musician Miles Davies spotted the incident as he was working nearby
‘It was all a bit mad really to be honest,’ he said.
‘You see these photos all the time of builders doing daft things like overreaching on ladders and so on but I thought this one really took the biscuit.’
However after Miles came back later that day the work had been completed and there was no sign of an accident so it obviously al went according to plan.
‘It is a bit of a bizarre set up for anyone to try to use a ladder as a beam to stand on instead of as a pair of actual ladders,’ he said.
‘That said, he appeared quite comfortable on the ladders using them that way.’
