“There is a current tension in society regarding health and safety issues. Criticisms of safety notices (Warning contents may be hot etc) reflect the view that contemporary society has become over-concerned with removing every aspect of risk from our lives. There is a corresponding view that such approaches are less to do with ensuring individual or group safety and more to do with protecting institutions from possible litigation. Nevertheless, we should not forget that the Health and Safety at Work Acts originated in the laudable aim of minimizing the risk of death or severe injury among the workforce”.
