Health and Safety REALLY goes mad as executive fails its own test
Health and Safety madness has hit an “absurd” level after the executive failed ITSELF in a check.
The Government agency’s lab in Buxton, Derbys, where all its large-scale testing is done, got a warning notice for not having a proper risk assessment in place.
The facility is now up to scratch but the embarrassing blunder was revealed in its latest report.
Lib Dem leadership contender Ed Davey said: “Talk about health and safety gone mad.
“It’s rather absurd that the Health and Safety Executive have slapped themselves with a warning notice.
“It would be comical if it wasn’t so serious.”
