Health and Safety

Comment 4th August 2010

Our local community is looking to some weeding and landscaping in a local piece of woodland. The council has given permission but volunteers will need to be trained for Health and Safety reasons. I can understand why the council should give permission but the fact that I need to be trained for health and safety reasons has completely put me off from volunteering. Can we please remove all government imposed health and safety measures and let common sense prevail.

Why does this matter?

The idea of removing Health and Safety legislation is important to re-create community spirit. Too many events are cancelled or forbidden because of unnecessary red-tape. This stops people from participating and volunteering. I am not just talking about community work but also events at work and school.
