Openreach turn up and decide they need to dig.
Landlord's managing agent demands a "risk and method statement" before allowing Openreach to dig.
Openreach engineer says "No way are we doing anymore paperwork".
I have asked everyone in the loop to do their best.
And everyone says they will except Openreach who just say no.
The technician on site just refers to his "fibre lead" who says "no more paperwork".
Bear in mind that Openreach staff do this stuff all day every day - and work to guidelines set out by their company ..... their contractors also.
All the more reason they should have proforma RAMS ready to sign and hand over. If you're doing any work involving power tools on premises that are likely to be covered by someone else's liability insurance then you should know better than to expect to pitch up and be allowed to do what you want.
