Health and Safety Executive reveals ‘scores of bogus bans’

Bogus safety bans are being used by organisations to cover up bad service or to avoid being sued, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has said.

An expert panel set by the HSE to expose health and safety myths said such bans were being used to stop legitimate activities.

A ban on bubbles at a child’s party and a restaurant refusing to serve burgers rare were among the cases found.

The HSE said such “nonsense” overshadowed genuine health and safety.

In its first annual report, the HSE’s new panel revealed 150 cases of businesses and public bodies using non-existent rules to stop activities which were perfectly safe.

Bubble Ban At Parties: Safety Myths Exposed

Bubbles banned from a child’s birthday party and toothpicks removed from a restaurant are among a list of health and safety myths exposed in the last year.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) said more than 150 cases had been reported to a panel it set up last year to target “jobsworths” who use safety laws as a ruse to ban legitimate activities.
