Doesn't the OV H&S plan warn you about the risks of admin meetings? My personal plan covers things like racism genderism and that ism where they assume everyone can read tiny detail; and also overwork and blood pressure. As a result I haven't been to an AGM in a while.
Sounds a very sensible decision. Interesting how lots of outdoorsy sporty people injure themselves in their kitchens. The latest l've heard was of an injury caused while quilting.
I used to laugh at my previous place of employment where they'd warn of paper cuts, RSI and falling off the chair while in the office, but there was no mention of what might happen to you if you went firefighting. (However, l think that oversight may have since been rectified.)
Quilting, that's a worry. I do (nearly) 8hrs quilting each day. Well, night mostly.
*waves hand* Weaving injury here!
gruver - quilting? or doonering?
I might take up doonering if its safer. But are they warm enough?
If you tuck them in behind you.
There's not much that's considered safe these days - inside or outside the house! I'm glad l was brought up last century.
Prue, I have to tell you what I read today on a historical information sign at Belair National Park:
Up until the early 1940s, beer was supplied at fires to 'refresh' firefighters. When the park curator stopped beer delivery to fires "so we might get some work done" the frequency of bushfires was greatly reduced.
Haha. More fun ruined!
As recently as 2003, the helicopter pilots at major fires were all in the pub at midnight drinking shots (while explaining that flying a helicopter was like balancing a ruler vertically on one finger), then up at 7 to fly.
Now they have to have .00 BAC.
Son broke two verterbrae and a shoulder whilst under a quilt asleep.
I've always found the exit from the ORC to be very dark.
