michaelmurfy:DaveB: Health and Safety Gone Mad
This just about sums it up
And do't get me started on Political Correctness
That one time I was a H&S officer at a "large telecommunications company" in a retail store of some sorts I had to print off a poison label for the methylated spirits bottle as per the request of the OSH officer to also state it wasn't grape juice. I wish I was kidding...
I turned around to the OSH officer and said "Everyone in the store is over 20 years of age, do you really think anyone would be that retarded to mistake methylated spirits for grape juice and consume enough to actually go blind or die from it?" her response was "yes, I do, please label it".
I couldn't even...
I also had to start wearing a hard hat every time I went up a small step ladder to get stock from the shelves. They've turned mad.
