In the words of our correspondent: “Please find attached picture of a best practice from Turkey! I took this picture on a job site next to my home. It’s a steel construction building in progress. Having an access equipment rental company I offered these guys one of my machines but they chose to work in their own way. Funny thing is the constructor has some serious completed work references in Turkey."
