That is quality chair-spotting. I had to look again to even see the lonely chair in number 3.

Phew, thank goodness the EU never got wind of those ladder regulations, can you imagine the negotiations to suit 27 countries' building requirements :-)

(Those chairs are mostly quite lo-tech considering they're at a lab where they're trying to make a space laser that can rip a hole in the Universe.)

The regs don't seem to say say why they want access. Fire escapes? Snow clearance? Both? Something else - it isn't about the refs in the same way that cars don't just have brakes to pass the MOT.

Here's the forum on which I found that:
finlandforum.org

There are links on that page I can't get to as you have to be a registered Finland Forumite!

I think it is to make it easier for burglars and prevent law suits should they fall when trying to access an open window.

A French bench, with obligatory bike. The stripy jumper wearing onion seller had gone for lunch ;-)

Homecoming benches.
No. 1 - the bench at our local Tesco. There are lots of sculptures by the same artist along the TransPennine Trail


No. 2 - the work in progress bench. Mr W liberated this from neighbours who were throwing it out three years ago. He's going to do it up so I can sit in the sun. It had half a slat more then.....
