Ridiculous H&S policies


#1

Lets get a little light hearted, i will start, wearing of goggles/safety specs for fieldcraft, yet npt for cross country running :joy::joy:


#2

If you are using weapons then its not that bad an idea. Which im assuming thats directly where its come from.


#3

They’re also used as a precaution for bungees springing back and taking an eye out


#4

While you’re at it, don’t walk on cracks in the pavement.


#6

It is a tradition that on St David’s Day new members of the Mess would eat a leek while standing on a chair with one foot on the table. It has now been decided that this is a dangerous practice and must stop. This would have been a good April Fools joke if it were not true.


#7

In the CCF we were told some time ago not to use bungees for that very reason.


#8

Monthly Ladder Inspections


#9

That message doesn’t seem to have been passed on to all units, or not passed on to new staff or the cadets running the lessons


#10

I dont use bungees with my cadets, we use either knots on string, or “nite ize cam jams” which are just awesome


#11

We got caught by that after we stupidly left our steps out when the H&S bod came down. Mind you easiest one ever … are the steps there, yes, box ticked.
The only people I know to check ladders are the scaffolders in the village. I got some of their old ones a few years ago after they had to throw them out, ideal for decorating and window cleaning. Nothing wrong with them for household use.


#12

Do have a link for the cam jams?

#14

Thanks ordered some on Amazon to try!


#15

Theyre awesome mate, just be aware that you cant use the old green string as itll just fray, it needs to be paracord, melt the cut ends to a point and youre good to go, no mucking around with bungees


#16

Comes with cord included apparently - will report back when they arrive.


#17

Please don’t tell me this is actually a thing?


#18

Whats that?


#19

Safety googles for fieldcraft.


#20

Yup, someone somewhere clearly had to justify their existence​:joy::joy:


#21

Nearly got RSI after rewriting the core risk assessments for my Squadrons in my Wing!!
