Thank you for exposing the ridiculous examples of health and safety in Great Britain. The Health and Safety Executive recognises that these examples you gave are not only terrible representations of health and safety but also something which we want to put an end to. We recently launched a risk debate to stop this and bring the focus back to the job of reducing the 220 fatal injuries and the thousands of non-fatal injuries in Britain's workplaces every year.
