The truth behind health and safety myths

The TUC has just published a report that challenges a number of urban myths about health and safety practice. These include:

- Workplaces are “risk averse” and employers are overly cautious because of the fear of health and safety regulations.

- There are now more regulations and red tape than ever.

- A local authority ordered the removal of St Georges’ flags from outside shops on safety grounds.

There are another seven urban myths and four half-truths to browse over in Health and Safety Myths: Looking at the truth behind the headlines (TUC).

Hi Spike. I've not got around to putting them all back up again. I managed about 250 the other night and the rest will get done soon. Tranferring to BetaBlogger is trickier than I thought. James.
