I was thoroughly enjoying your 9 October publication until I wandered across David Westwood’s email regarding your health and safety blunders (page 27), which sent me into fits of laughter and disbelief

Most employers and employees in the UK construction industry take health and safety seriously. One of the best ways to communicate directives is to use examples demonstrating what not to do!

It is a known fact that humour and fun are extremely useful learning tools. Where is the harm in showcasing examples of poor safety practice for all to see and learn from?

Please do not pander to one person’s extreme “minority opinion” at the expense of the majority of readers who are reasonable, sensible and know this feature is light-hearted and informative. This is a clear case of the minority out to ruin it for the rest.
