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

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.

A fascinating read.

A real insight into the crazy world of health and safety and jobs worths gone mad. From the sublime to the absolutely ridiculous. a book that you can read a couple of pages at a time and have something peculiarly interesting to tell your friends. I’m afraid if I was in the situation of some of the contributors I would probably have ended up inside for doing something illegal through sheer frustration at how petty people can be. I purchased the kindle version but now wish I had bought the hard copy to pass on and amuse somebody else. I can highly recommend this as something that should brighten your day.

Can you really believe these stories?

Taking risk assessments is wise and sensible. But some results of “Health and Safety” regulations take all the fun out of life. If we do not take risks, we shall never achieve anything. Depending on what we are doing, those risks may be physical. Here are some of the almost unbelievable ones. Personally, I am waiting for football to be either played with a soft ball or for players to be required to wear helmets. And, of course, my local Sailing Club to sail on dry land: it avoids the risk of drowning!

a good laugh if you live outside the UK

I loved it because it was so bizarre I am so glad that I spend most of my life away from these stupid regulations
