Case 274 - Ban on eating fruit in a sauna rest area

Issue

A leisure centre banned eating fruit in the rest area of a sauna for health and safety reasons.

Panel decision

There are no health and safety regulations which would ban the consumption of fruit in sauna areas. Whatever the management's reasons are for imposing this ban, they need to provide a proper explanation not use the convenient health and safety catch-all excuse.
