Risk assessors at Pleasure Beach

HEALTH and safety officials will be visiting the Pleasure Beach in Great Yarmouth tomorrow in an effort to disprove the old jibe that health and safety stops people from having fun.

HEALTH and safety officials will be visiting the Pleasure Beach in Great Yarmouth tomorrow in an effort to disprove the old jibe that health and safety stops people from having fun.

Members of the Food Industry Safety and Health Network (FISHnet) and Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will demonstrate how health and safety, properly applied, can make a visit to leisure attractions an exciting and incident-free experience.

Eddie Scoggins, the HSE's principal inspector, said: “The purpose of the day is to demonstrate that, far from being killjoys, health and safety advisors simply seek to minimise risks to employees and the public without banning things or spoiling anyone's fun.

“At the end of the workshop we hope that delegates will have a better understanding of the sensible risk message and show that if they apply this concept to health and safety in their business, they can protect their employees and the public by concentrating on serious issues and ignoring the trivia.”
