Health & Safety and Equality Considerations for Christmas Songs

Written by Glen Ocsko on . Posted in Our blog

The Rocking Song
Little Jesus, sweetly sleep, do not stir;
We will rock you, rock you, rock you,
We will rock you, rock you, rock you:

Fur is no longer appropriate wear for small infants, both due to risk of allergy to animal fur, and for ethical reasons. Therefore faux fur, a nice cellular blanket or perhaps micro-fleece material should be considered a suitable alternative.

Please note, only persons who have been subject to a Criminal Records Bureau check and have enhanced clearance will be permitted to rock baby Jesus. Persons must carry their CRB disclosure with them at all times and be prepared to provide three forms of identification before rocking commences.

How to walk in three easy steps

Written by Glen Ocsko on . Posted in Our blog

Today we got given a flyer and sent an e-mail about a lunch-time walk.  This certainly sounds nice on the face of it – a scenic stroll next to the river in the company of interesting colleagues and in decent (if not fine) weather.

That, my friends, is where Local Government kicked in.

If we wanted to take part in this walk firstly we had to register our interest.  Register interest?!  It’s a walk for crying out loud!!!  What possible reason could there be for registering interest in walking from a to b – if we are interested then we’ll just do it!

Bus-y going nowhere

Written by Glen Ocsko on . Posted in Our blog

Accidents happen and mistakes are made. As we once said, it is important to be proud of the failures; in that case Plymouth Council have a lot to be proud of after they painted bus stop road markings on a road which no bus travelled down.

 

Apparently the confusion arose as the council repainted miles and miles of roads across Plymouth, which in itself is no small task. However, they didn’t realise that the route for a local bus had been changed a couple of years ago, so painted very nice fresh bus stop markings on the road.

 

As you’ll see in the pictures on This Is Devon’s website these were soon painted over and removed, with the whole thing costing a grand total of £1245. Not a huge amount in the grand scheme of things perhaps, but still money that didn't need to be spent and was only valuable if this results in a lesson learned for all involved!
