The Emperor Mongs Pronouncements

This was a couple of years ago, triple whammy here.

1. Council not cleaning the drains
2. The BMW had ignored the copper's advice not to go through it.
3. That bridge has been hit more times than Katie Price's twat, latest was a couple of weeks ago by a low loader with 3 new Claas tractors on it.

You have to wonder how these people justify a policy like that, to themselves and their management. For a start, if I was their manager I'd want to see a risk assessment based on all the previous incidents of scalding and burns resulting from what would appear to be, human employees flinging their food over each other with gay abandon. How the fvck they manage to navigate their way around a cafe must be a joy to behold. However, the reality will be some supervisor who decided that he/she (probably she) would show that on their annual performance achievements they sought to create a safer working environment and that taking away hot food and drink was an easy target as all the really important things had been done by someone else. Add in a weak manager who approves it and box ticked, kpi achieved and bonus in the bank.
If anyone working for me came up with something like that for their performance achievement, they'd be looking for another job not long after.
You obviously missed the implications of the key sentence.

iOne of our local government offices has banned all hot food and drink from the office in case someone spilt it and scalded themselves, which meant production dropped as everyone had to nip out of the office everytime they wanted a brew.

Though it is understandable that the risk assessor thought they couldn't be trusted with making a brew. I am pretty certain some of them have difficulty remembering to breathe. As for getting rid, I just had a clerk promoted sideways as after over 40 years in a basic level clerical job, he still had to be shown things like how to log into accounting software every week.
He's now a "Meeting Room Coordinator" that means he's a janitor with a suit.

The level of self importance of meeting room coordinators has to be experienced to be believed

If only Stagecoach could learn lessons from this sort of thing Winchester school bus bridge crash leaves children injured

I suspect his Eminence's lurking presence is built into contracted services awarded to the lowest tender.

In theory the responsibility for not hitting a low bridge is all down to the driver. Every bus driver should chec k the vehicle height marker as part of their first use check. Drivers should be trained on their routes and the company should have recced routes.

But,
1. It is common for the driver to be expected to learn any new routes at their own expense, on rest days or after hours. I am not sure how thoroughly employers check whether a driver is familiar with a new route, or are just glad to find someone to fill a roster. After all if it goes wrong it will be the driver's fault. The Winchester accident mentioned a "New driver"
2. If a bus company is going to tender for a new route, how much time and effort will they spend driving a new route? They might not win the tender. Even when they have done so, why spend all day driving around when oyu can find it all on google...

He had a large element of that already. My opposite number in finance once caught him claiming to do my job, and people used to tell me they were going to report me to him.
Back in the day he was also a member of the Legion of Frontiersmen. Which is a combat indicator for being both a fantasist and a cunt.

Weak.
So very, very weak.
You should be telling us how, on receipt of that information, you stitched him up like a kipper, alleging that he touched your noo noo, or at the very least, planted kiddy porn in his desk.

His life as a fat hobbit living in Motherwell is punishment enough.

Every day is a schoolday, I'd never heard of them, either here or during my time in NZ.

Thanks for that, I'll be sure to keep my distance from such a fine body of loons.

You'll really have to be a bit more specific, there's fucking legions of such creatures inhabiting the Clyde Valley.

Having checked which thread this is in, does the use of explosives feature in any of your H&S guidance?
When I was a kid and the west coast mainline was electrified simple metal gantry's were erected 20 yards in front of the level crossing with a wire with bells on poles attached 10 yards in front of them. Basis idea truck hits wire bells ring truck has ten yards to stop before he hits gantry then actually stops. But the electric cables on main line are not hit. It would not be difficult to use this method in front of bridges. At the very least it would prevent structural damage to bridges from accidents.

'Police in Hampshire were stunned after being told by the organisers of a house party that they were 'unaware of the pandemic'.

'Officers were called to an address on Guernsey Close in Basingstoke after several reports of a gathering.

'When told they had breached lockdown rules, the occupants claimed they 'didn't know as they don't watch the news'.

Doubly unaware then - clearly didn't know that ignorance of the law is no defence :thumleft:
