It would seem that Nanny's health and safety rules are now putting people's lives at risk.
Nanny has decreed that coastguards must complete a health and safety questionnaire, a "vehicle pre-journey risk assessment", before they can respond to calls for help on land.
Under the new rules, the teams have to take the time to answer four questions on the type of rescue and journey they are about to undertake.
After filling in the date and time, the lead rescuer must outline the "reason for journey" and detail any risks the team may encounter during the rescue, including both current and forecast weather conditions.
The form then asks for a summary of any "actions taken to mitigate risk" before the leader can fill in a "yes" or "no" as to whether the risk is "acceptable".
The form is purely to be used for land rescues, not rescues at sea.
Ermm...isn't this a tad inconsistent?
Let us trust that the idiots who thought his idea up never need urgent/speedy rescue themselves!
