Some years ago I did a H&S course and none of this bollox came into it, this is some wonker with a "no work" type position just thinking up crap as they cannot find anthing worth while to do, another load of New Labour BS
This accounts for our beloved leaders indecision when asked about his biscuit preferences. He had to check with H & S that he ate a suitable type of buscuit so that if the loving masses followed his example all would be correct.
Maybe the 'Elf & Safety' Goblins should do a H&S Survey of how local authority workers have a dump..... maybe send a letter advising them that the WC in the Place of Work is a dangerous place.....
(a) You could slip on somebodys wee on the floor...
(b) Have a nasty accident by treading in someone's pooh on the floor.
(c) Have your 'Human Rights' violated by looking into an unflushed toilet with 'floaters' in it... (nasty one that, nearly makes me sick..)
(d) A Supervisory Team of Inspectors to oversee how employees remove clothing, then sit on WC pedestal in the 'correct manner' to avoid accidents in the process of having a 'clear-out'...!!
(d) No unauthorised sexual congress or manual dexterous excitment of self whilst engaged in the cubicle. Very dangerous to indulge in, makes you weak, deaf and hair fall out.... also is very 'sinful' according to the Health and Safety manual.
A fertile area for Health and Safety Officials to looks into, produce a weighty tome for general guidance thereof.... oh yes, indeedy!!
As I was putting my trolley back, outside Sainsbury's, this afternoon (to reclaim my quid), I noticed there were even bloody safety warnings on the handles of the trolleys!! And they were only the little shallow trolleys!
