Health and Safety -
Some Funny Anomalies

Good health and safety practice was all about 'exercising judgement',
safety adviser said.

'People in authority such as councillors and managers need to be much
more "risk literate" or "risk intelligent". And third partiers such as

Having been told this; Will and Guy decided to seek out some unusual and
strange examples for your enjoyment. We think that these examples show a
certain lack of ability in the risk assessment area.

Reasoning of Health and Safety Expert
