This review is from: In the Interests of Safety: The absurd rules that blight our lives and how we can change them (Kindle Edition)
Unlike the previous reviewer, I actually have read the book. The main thrust is not an attack on health and safety but rather it's wilful distortion by public bodies and others to the point of absurdity. The authors highlight the 'theatre of security' which allows space for consultants to sell solutions to spurious threats. This, together with the fear of litigation, results in the disproportionate response which have no basis in law or common sense. The point the authors wish to reinforce is that the public need to challenge such misuse and insist that those responsible justify their official policies, but more importantly change them to reflect reality.
In summary, an amusing and exasperating read, but one that offers useful advice to anyone who has ever wondered, Why? That just doesn't make sense!
