At the risk of getting back on topic....

Quote: Also schools are famous for stories of banning conker fights on the grounds of HS

The conker myth - http://www.hse.gov.uk/myth/september.htm

"Myth: there are now more regulations and red tape than ever.
Truth: there were more than twice as many health and safety regulations and laws 35 years ago than there are today. The legislation that remains is now generally simpler and easier to understand."

Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms/etc. Chairperson, a point of order:


Quote: At the risk of getting back on topic....

but in the old days you just did the job, no "faffng" about.

the "I was supplied with the wrong ladder" (a crap, insulting, ambulance chaser, solicitor's TV ad )

cos you secured the blinking thing properly, because you learnt from the old boys NO?

we dont train anybody now so the point is invalid!

and conkers could be used instead of serious weapons,

and just to really get off topic the hoary old ban hand guns did well did it not?

NOW ONLY OUTLAWS HAVE GUNS!

In the old days you were a damn sight more likely to be killed or injured:

For injuries, between 1974 and 2010:
the number of fatal injuries to employees fell by 84%;
the rate of fatal injury (per 100 000 employees) fell by 83%;
the number of reported non-fatal injuries fell by 75%;

Still want to go back to the old days? I don't. I remember was it was like working in a chemical plant back in 1974. I'm really glad things have improved.

Apparently the head teacher at that school had had H&S inspection at his school and he was frustrated with their edicts. So he ordered the kids to wear safety goggles to illustrate how you could turn good legislation to ridiculous extremes then he called the press to publicise his stunt.

the number of employes fell by 84% also though lol. On a serious note you are talking when factories were at full capacity there were mines, docks steelworks etc. we had hoovers that employed 5000 people in merthyr in 74 doubt theres 30 working there now, and then theres god knows how many that worked in the mines, so yes i still want to look at the old days.

That world has gone, and its not bad news that. By all means we could go back to the old days, and wages will go down further and the cost of goods up and people will have shorter lives, well the workers will. Perhaps that is what is going to happen when the economy sorts itself out. Its not an attractive vision.

Quote: as far as im concearned the cscs card is nothing more than a scam

The idea of it, is to prove that you are safe to be let loose on a construction site & know the basic rules.
It is not just your well being that is in question, it is also that of your fellow workers.

Under 18 year old workers, without a Young persons risk assessment, are the same.
They do not know the basic rules & why should they.
Providing it is all correctly implemented, then they too, can work on all major construction sites (This by the way, is the law)


Quote: if you dont do it then down the road you go, an i have worked for all the major house builders an they all the same

On this I would agree.
They all (house builders) preach a good H & S standard, but very rarely adhere to it.

They let the industry down
