I am impressed to see the many and varied ways Nanny comes up with, when it comes to wasting our time and money.
It has recently come to light that, way back in October 2004, a teacher at a school in Wokingham fell off a ladder whilst pinning a poster to a wall.
The teacher received £82K in compensation/legal costs, the result of which caused the council to train its staff to undergo training for "height activities".
I appreciate that some people are slack jawed, dribbling morons when it comes to using ladders. However, these people are unlikely to "learn" from any training re "height activities". The majority of people treat ladders etc with a healthy respect and care.
I would also note that there is a world of difference between pinning a notice to the wall (whilst using a small/simple ladder), to using a "real ladder" to scale the outside of a building as a fireman or window cleaner (where clearly some form of training is required).
The fact that this little story has taken so long to come out makes me wonder how many other hidden wastes of time and money have been going on, courtesy of our "respected" councils, over the years?
