This, is yet another interesting health and safety issue.

Triangular Flapjacks laffin

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-21923218

Partial quote...

A school's decision to ban triangular flapjacks after a pupil was hurt has been labelled "half-baked" by the Health and Safety Executive.

It follows an incident at Castle View School in Canvey Island, Essex, when a boy was hit in the face by a flapjack.

Catering staff at the school have been told only to serve square or rectangular flapjacks.

The school said the "isolated accident" had led to a review of "the texture and shape of the flapjacks" provided............


What other brain dead, Health and Safety Executive ideas, can you think of?

As for me`I think, unscrupulous Solicitors chasing compensation have a lot to answer for,they must be doing well due to the number of adverts on tv,I have no time for them at all.

hi Elizabeth and Van.

There are lots of unscrupulous professions now, it would seem. Also many who would take advantage in business. Particularly those who own garages. Their emplyees seem to have a rough ride, so far as I can see.

This link is really very informative for anyone who might like to know about entitlements in the work place, rest breaks, times between the end of one shift and start of another. If the rules were followed, it may just add a few more jobs out there, instead of loan workers for example.
