Nobody likes to be misinformed when it c

Nobody likes to be misinformed when it comes to health so we would like to clear up some of the most common first aid #MYTHS:

It is a common myth that you should force your child to be sick if they swallow chemicals or tablets but this can cause further problems. If faced with this problem, take your child to hospital or phone an ambulance immediately.

Health and Safety MYTH: Health and safet

Health and Safety MYTH: Health and safety laws mean concert-goers have to wear earplugs.

No, audiences don’t have to wear earplugs! Going to noisy concerts is their choice. The laws are there to protect people who have to work in loud places.

Concert staff are at more risk of suffering hearing damage because they regularly work in high levels of noise. That is why employers should make sure they provide protection – this could be as simple as moving staff away from the noisiest areas, or providing suitable earplugs.

Hearing loss is preventable, so it’s important to protect people to help them enjoy long and successful careers. The laws are there to control real risks to workers – not to take the fun out of concerts.

Health and Safety MYTHS: Graduates are b

Health and Safety MYTHS:

Graduates are banned from throwing mortar boards

Health and safety law doesn’t stop graduates having fun and celebrating their success in the time-honoured fashion!

The chance of being injured by a flying mortar board is incredibly small, and when the concern is actually about the hats being returned in good condition, it’s time to stop blaming health and safety.

Health and Safety MYTHS: All park benche

Health and Safety MYTHS:

All park benches must be replaced because they are 3 inches too low:

This story really took us by surprise. How could there be health & safety law on this? The simple answer is, there isn’t.

‘It seems that the story originated from a decision by a facility manager and has no basis in health and safety law at all. There are no such bench height requirements and HSE will definitely not be sending there inspectors around measuring the benches!

Well, it looks like Britain’s park benches will survive after all!
