Mythbusters - NZ version
Time for my usual rant. Seems like a construction site, with no work going on on a Sunday is chock full of overhead risks and truck/forklift drivers who cant see. Have we ever seen a bigger bunch of virtuous non-working high viz hard hat people? About time the Industry learnt the Act. Eliminate risk of harm falling on PM by not allowing her on building site! (where are the steel cap boots?
Thankfully sanity prevails.
A few days ago it was reported that Oz Navy Personnel were banned from marching at an ANZAC dawn service because it was in the dark and there was consequently a Slip/Trip/Fall risk.
But now ""We will take sufficient safety mitigations prior to that activity to make sure they don't slip." says the head honcho.
Its written here in the media so must be true. Https://www.theherald.com.au/story/6031073/defence-backflips-on-anzac-day-decision/?cs=7
Its time to find somewhere new to live so went to some open homes in the weekend. Stopped at one and I thought I was entering an EQC repair zone. Strange - hadnt been mentioned in the advertising.
Got closer it was this sign. Agent saw me taking photo and said "do you like our sign" I said "No - I havent seen anything more ridiculous in my whole life" (Must learn to apply filter between thoughts and mouth!). To which he replied its a statutory requirement because they would get into trouble if I tripped.
If a house is that dangerous why would I want to buy it?
