Health & Safety Gone Mad

June 24th, 2014 · Posted by Skuds in Politics · No Comments · Politics

Here is an idea. I would like to propose a change to H&S regulations to the effect that any politician who complains about health & safety regulations in the workplace is not only exempt from all such regulations themselves, but if they ever go on a photo opportunity visit to a construction site, factory, warehouse, depot, disaster site, oil rig etc. they are, under no circumstances, allowed to wear hard hats, safety goggles, hi-vis jackets or any other items of PPE.

If nothing else, it would reduce the number of tedious photo-ops of politicians in hard hats. They may moan about H&S but they do love to dress up whenever they get the chance don’t they? In an ideal world it would lead to a bit of gloriously ironic natural selection.

An extra flourish to the legislation would force them to state whether they specifically object to safety or to health.
