  1. ‘Safety is the religion that the so called civilised world has used to replace Christianity.

    Certainly in construction, those who hold the ‘Safety’ positions have almost total control over how you do your job.
    You are not allowed to argue against any measure that is supposed to ‘improve safety’

    Quite often young girls and boys with no practical experience overrule tradesmen with decades of experience. All thanks to unions who use safety to fill their coffers and control even non-union workplaces.

  3. In defence of safety culture ( slightly).

    You are supposed to quantify the harm you are trying to avoid then weigh that against the costs.
    Unfortunately a lot of employees love to bring out “ you you cant put a price on safety” because they have shit on their liver and want to shitstir.
    Then they wonder why the business has so many spastic procedures and paperwork devoted to the subject they brought up.
    And with the new “ manager is always responsible unless absolutely specifically not” it’s going to get much worse.

    To/dr: employees get exactly what they claim to want: don’t like it.

    Statism is the religion which has replaced Christianity, compliance is the new morality.

  5. Ta Rugbyskier. From a little more research am certain now it is an Australian & US regulatory thing. I have travelled to internal Asian destinations through Changi and on at least 1 occasion had more than 100mL of liquids in my backpack as late as 2011 that didn’t raise an eyebrow.

    The staff at Changi apparently gave no reason. A lot of European grog that would have cost a fortune in Oz apparently went down the sink. 🙁
