5 Over The Top Health and Safety Myths

You often hear people say that The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is a buzzkill, or has gone mad on safety laws. You could be forgiven for thinking this when you read headlines saying how children are at a risk when playing party games, or that flip-flops in the workplace can kill you. The HSE is not out to ban everything remotely fun. They do not want to ruin children’s parties, they do not want to ban graduations, and they do not...

Debunking a huge misconception about road safety

Yesterday (25th February, 2017), I discovered a huge misconception about road safety and crossing roads. Infact I had the misfortune of seeing a tweet on road safety and kids that I didn’t agree with. In my very unusual fashion, I was quick to call the tweeter to order but it didn’t go down well.
