HMRC Bans Fairy

Oh dear oh dear, who would have thought that Nanny would ban a Fairy?

But she has!

It appears that the well know brand of washing up liquid (Fairy Liquid) does not meet with the approval of the health and safety gestapo at HMRC's office in East Kilbride.

For why?

Allegedly it contains “non-approved chemicals”.

Does this mean that the product is a threat to the health an safety of all who use it?


It poses only a threat to HMRC staff in East Kilbride!

Those running the office there want only the UK Government department’s official supplier (Brillo) to be used in the washing up process.

However, the staff at HMRC’s East Kilbride office have fought back and, according to the Daily Record, have smuggled in their favourite brand.

Alas senior management are demanding staff get rid of the unauthorised cleaning fluids.

An email from Fiona McGregor of the “governance and security team” said:
I have received feedback that when checking tea points staff identified some with non approved chemicals.

The control of substances hazardous to health regulations 2002 requires employers to control exposure to potentially hazardous substances.

Therefore any chemicals brought on to site require to be assessed.

These include products such as household washing up liquid and cleaning sprays etc.

All that should be at the tea points should be ISS approved and supplied chemicals – Brillo washing up liquid.

At some point in the next few weeks a check will be made on all tea points and any non approved chemicals removed.

Why are we paying taxes to employ people like this?

  1. I suspect, that now the light of publicity has illuminated this stupidity, reverse gear will be engaged and it will all be one big misunderstanding.

    I doubt it. I'm surprised this took so long to reach East Kilbride. Its been the case n the rest of the country for years. You are also not allowed to have air freshener in the toilets.

    I personally do not normally use Fairy, preferring 'Ecover' washing up liquid. However, that is my personal choice, and I have no right whatever to attempt imposing my views on this upon other people. Similarly, the staff at HMRC should be free to use whatever washing up liquid they choose, provided it isn't something toxic.

    "Alas senior management are demanding staff get rid of the unauthorised cleaning fluids."
    Let them do the washing up then, in which case they can use whatever they like! Have these jobsworths really so little to do that they have to interfere with others in this manner?

    “governance and security team”
    que? Does this body serve any worthwhile function, other than poking their noses into other people's business?

    "At some point in the next few weeks a check will be made on all tea points and any non approved chemicals removed.”
    Wouldn't that be theft?
