I'm a site supervisor/carpenter and I can't see how our company can keep us going . Trying to run a busy site is impossible with health and safety now . Every job has just become a headache ,we are on a schedule and must hit dead lines,I've said to my boss you can forget them as it's impossible to run a site how the HSE say we should . Anyone else struggling at work . I've run our sites for 9 years and it's been getting harder with health and safety but now it's impossible.
TBH we are ok and should (touch wood) remain so. We run tipper trucks and our own inert landfill sites, So most staff are in their own little bubble as such be it in a lorry or a machine. We have made a few little changes to the way the ticket system works, Like they are now left in a box and not passed from one person to another by hand. Work wise we seem to be as busy as ever we just hope it remains that way.
I'm pretty sure I will be out of a job soon . Loads of our team have said they are not coming back as they have kids etc,from the way our bosses are talking they may need to lay people off and get sub contractors in .
It’s going to be hard I think ,and not good lots of people are going to be out of work , I just hope I can keep getting a bit of work to keep me going , even if only a couple days a week , as with miss working we can cope,
I am really considering selling up all my toys now bikes ect just in case ,, focus is going up for sale soon but have just taxed it as love driving it,,but has to go put the cash in the bank just in case
Seems everyone is doing the same bud loads of rs's coming out of the woodwork now . Our car has had offers but they are really low ,from traders . All are saying private car sales are low. Pcp deals and 0% interest deals people will just do the instead .
