Most Inspectors will recognise that not being able to climb stairs or ladders pretty much stops them from Inspecting. This is what has happened to Len Inkster.
He fell down some stairs and has a spiral fracture of his left fibula and some soft tissue damage, (ligaments and tendons) in his left leg and ankle.
The original prognosis was that he was going to be unable to perform inspections for at least 3 months.
His costs, however, have gone up, with medical equipment and drug needs.
Len now has to have surgery to stabilise the bones in his ankle and leg, meaning his recovery may take much longer.
Len has been one of the mainstays for OntarioACHI for the last six years and has invested a huge amount of time and effort to help the Association in developing the profession and advocating for us with the various levels of government.
He is also one of the first inspectors to help his fellow members out when they need assistance or advice.
He has been almost solely responsible for the development and support of the OntarioACHI web services and has done all of this at no cost to us as an association or to you as Inspectors.
Many of our members think of OntarioACHI as more of a family and not just an Association of Inspectors.
We've proved this to be the case in the past, let's prove it again.
