One day, somebody is going to challenge that in court - most likely, it
will be some tower user's own insurance company, trying to recover the
costs of a big payout after an accident.

British courts would almost certainly enforce a "duty of care" to
provide adequate instructions, especially if the lack of them has
resulted in major personal injury or property damage.
