as a sparkie i must advise anyone who has been shocked who have chest pains to get checked out..better a long wait in emergancy ect then having a heart problem


In retrospect I should have gone up to A&E. Didn't half hurt! Definitely have a phobia of electrics now. Certainly couldn't do it for a living. Stick me behind a desk with some numbers an I'm happy.



as you mention it, we had a guy take a bolt 2 years ago and 'died' on the scene. he was kept going by the customer and made a full physical recovery, however after a year off and a year back with no work targets to hit, he has been pensioned off as the psych damage was too much for him. he is now to scared to open airing cuoboard doors, much less work on boiler electrics. fair play to the company though..nice big golden handshake and early final salary pension.

surprising how many trades dont wear gloves. i have so many types available and hit makes a huge difference to my day. i had a roof done last year and one of the roofers came down with claet everywhere having opened up 3 fingers and the side of his hand. once i'd gaffa taped and superglued his hand, he looked at me as if i were dafe when i offered him a decent set of fingerless mechanics gloves.
