Very entertaining.' Jeffrey Podger, chief executive Health & Safety Executive Imagine a world where you wellington boots come with a 24-page instruction manual, or council carers who are prohibited from making tea for OAPs in case they scald themselves on the job. Welcome to Britain in the 21st century, where the Jobsworth now lords it large, issuing edicts of mind-boggling stupidity that ruin the quality of people's lives all in the name of Health and Safety. Journalist Alan Pearce has compiled the most outrageous and hilarious (and unfortunately all true) examples of Health and Safety gone mad. They will make you cringe whilst crying with laughter. You couldn't make it up! Includes: * The author who was banned from selling his book in case it caused paper cuts. * The swings removed from a playground in case children were blinded by the sun while playing on them. * An international cycle race banned after worries about urinating cyclists. * The risk assessment needed before a local village hall could sell mince pies

Health & Safety

 on 19 October 2017
By Chris Rixon
Great shows how the world has gone crazy over health and safety. Don’t get me wrong I am all for safety but the way it is going with so many stupid rules are people going to get complacent and not read their safety docs. People tend to as there is so much of it it would be better for them to be vigilant and be safe than reading some of the stupid rules.

HSE and EU gone mad

The plain dumbness of some of these stories beggars belief. Whatever happened to common sense? Of course there’s nothing we can do about it though, the government agreed to it all, so everyone must be tret like babies. One day books will be banned as reading them could give you ideas or hurt your eyes
