hi guys/thunder,yes thats true,wonder should i send it to our friends at the board then they could send a memo to all floor layer companies outlining the possible problem also to make sure they have suitable insurance to cover any explosions. I once saw in a welding business the owner useing a blowtorch from a 9kg without a regulator,when i asked about it he said it has been like that for 25yrs, when i was about to take a picture of it he blocked my view and told me in no uncertain terms to go away and multiply. That is what you get for pointing out a problem so let them blow themselves up,cheers

Yep - I be reporting that - I hope as you were taking the picture you were also putting on your running shoes and heading for the door.....

hi guys/jax, yes i did not stay long it really did make me feel uncomfortable, these guys obviously do this kind of thing all the time without thinking of possible problems, after surviving the recent earthquakes i certainly did not want to get blown up,cheers

lol too right robbo be a shame to go out in such a stupid way after all you guys have been through...far safer to go work in some other area of the building while hes risking his own arse!...and then yell out "Shit what the heck is OSH doing here!"  lol and see if he jumps.
