‘Elf and safety madness


Only spending a quarter of your resources on quality control?  UKAS encourages its assessors to let their imaginations run riot on the quest for non-compliances.  No possibility is too remote that the organisation won’t use it to pretend it is still doing something important.

The Health and Safety Executive does the opposite.  In its newsletter it mocks the paranoid impositions invented in the name of health and safety legislation.

Bravo HSE!

Will we ever see UKAS having a laugh at the silly non-compliances its assessors record?  No – because their work is confidential.  We know it’s to protect themselves from ridicule more than the commercial confidentiality of the businesses they parasitise.
