It's no secret I hate the Health and Safety Executive. They interfere in all sorts of daily business practices and dictate on common sense. I like to call them fascists which some people might think a little harsh, but their latest press release simple confirms my belief even more.
A director from a small construction company will be getting a taste of what happens when safety standards are allowed to slip, when the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) carries out a mock interview next week.The use of fear and intimidation by the state in order to control the actions of individuals? Nice!
Construction is one of the most hazardous industries to work in, and the exercise will see the director being questioned on a fictitious workplace accident. The interview under caution will be held before a group of spectators, also from the construction industry.
