A selection of this week's silliest health and safety stories

August is here and, with Parliament on recess until the 5th of September, silly season is in full swing here in Britain. This is that time of year when news outlets, starved of real stories, publish all sorts of daft articles in the hope of keeping readers interested until the end of the summer holidays.

As we've seen in previous years, cringeworthy health and safety stories tend to become a lot more commonplace during silly season - it seems that nothing gets readers fired up like an opportunity to complain about "health and safety gone mad". To give you a taste of the absurdity that besmirches health and safety's good name every August, here are 3 of the silliest H&S stories from the past 7 days:

  • Flower Baskets Taken Down: Lincolnshire newspaper the Spalding Guardian reported yesterday that the Holbeach in Bloom committee were up in arms after being told to take down several hanging flower baskets. The baskets had been hanging from brackets on Western Power electricity poles.  "I just think it's health and safety gone mad," said Graham Rudkin, chairman of Holbeach in Bloom. "We check the brackets every year and the baskets are not a danger to anybody." A spokesman for Western Power stated that the baskets had been ordered removed because the company could not allow anything to interfere with or be connected to its electrical infrastructure in any way.

  • Shop Sign Sparks Debate: Last Friday, Gloucestershire Live shared the story of a Winchcombe toy store who had placed an advertising board in the street outside the shop in the hope of attracting extra customers. Toys to Grow sought permission from Highways England before setting out the sign, but this didn't stop another local business from registering a formal complaint on the grounds that the board represented a potential trip hazard. Gloucestshire Today published this story under the headline 'Health and safety gone mad? 'Trip hazard' shop sign sees Winchcombe divided'. Local residents have reportedly rallied around the toy shop, with many donating money to help the business obtain planning permission for a wall sign instead.

  • Trampoline Tiff: Residents of West View Lane in Sheffield were disappointed last weekend when a housing provider threatened to take away a children's trampoline that several local families had chipped in to purchase. "We understand some residents will be disappointed we can't allow a trampoline in a communal garden," said a spokesperson for The Guinness Partnership, "but their health and wellbeing is our main priority." One resident, Allison Allette, stated: "We, as parents, feel the trampoline is safe and that should be all that matters." She also described the whole situation as - you guessed it - "health and safety gone mad". [source]

As we've suggested before, the trouble with stories like these is that they reinforce the public perception of health and safety as something that's simply out to spoil their enjoyment. As most of us know, this simply isn't the case - health and safety is there to save lives, and the sooner people stop attacking it and using it as an excuse for other things, the sooner everyone will come to view it in a more positive light.

It's the height of summer, the sun is shining, school is out and life is good. We all love making the most of summer, especially here in the UK, but that doesn't mean letting the heat go to your head! In terms of health and safety, the summer months (especially during the school holidays) are always a tough time for the emergency services. There's just something about the euphoria and freedom of the season, combined with unusually warm weather, that tends to make people neglect common sense, and forget health and safety. 

One of the biggest dangers to the public, vulnerable children and strong swimmers alike, is water. Whether it's an inland waterway, the beach, or even a public swimming pool, each of these spaces present their own unique hazards. To protect the public, it is essential that holidaymakers, day trippers, and even those just looking for a way to cool off, are reminded of the dangers posed by water,  whether it's the open ocean or a pleasure pool.

Here are a few of the water safety signs we stock at Label Source, along with their corresponding hazards:

No Swimming 

For some reason, the combination of heat and too much free time always drives people to swim in places they shouldn't. This is highly dangerous to even the most confident of swimmers, and is especially lethal to more vulnerable individuals, such as children and the elderly. Whether it's the threat of strong currents, thermal sock from exposure to cold water, or even the risk of illness from polluted water, certain areas should be made completely off-bounds to the public, as they are far too hazardous and unpredictable to guarantee a safe swimming experience. 

Do Not Run

Whether it's a poolside walkway or lakeside deck, water presents just as much of a hazard for those of us on dry land, as it does to those actually in the water! Anyone who's ever seen a lifeguard furiously whistling at a group of unruly children legging it to the pool, knows that the risks of slipping are ever-present around damp areas, and are even magnified if the flooring is shinny or covered in alge! To combat this, and reduce the chances of someone falling and injuring themselves, there should always be clear messages to warn individuals against rapid movements in slippery areas.

No Inflatables 

Some spaces just aren't suitable for certain types of aquatic equipment, and if this is the case, signs should be displayed to prevent members of the public from mistakenly taking them into the water. Inflatables, for example, can present a unique set of hazards in both open and enclosed bodies of water. If used in the sea, with the risk of wind and strong tidal changes, swimmers can soon be carried out to open water, where even experienced divers can come unstuck. In relation to small pools, the water may simply be too shallow to accommodate them, leading to accidents if people trip or fall from them. Their use could even cause the crowding and obscuring of water in small areas, which could make it difficult to spot an individual in distress. 

Lifejacket Warning Sign

Watersports are always popular during warmer months, and while enjoyable, they also present a plethora of health and safety hazards that must be addressed. From hitting rocks, to falling in open water, there are many risks to an individual's safety when taking part in water-based activities. This is why participants and activity providers should always be reminded of how important it is to be equipped with a lifejacket, which can act as an invaluable lifeline when things go wrong in unpredictable situations, which can go from fun to fatal in a matter of minutes.
