Is the Health and Safety Net Cracking?

leave a comment »


A very interesting report came out today.  It was from Ofsted and was announcing that kids who are not surfing online using a locked down system, are more aware of the dangers.

Surprise, surprise, kids who are aware of the dangers, adapt their behaviour to stay safe!

I would assume that this is also true for adults.  The safer we feel, the more irresponsible we act.  My car with ABS was ‘uncrashable’ and made me drive quicker will fewer safety margins.

If the world works through kids being influenced by teachers, and grow up with their attitudes until they see sense as adults, then maybe we will start seeing other cracks appearing in the health and safety net.

What do you think?

Do you believe in the ever compensating safety margin or is that just a myth created by people who don’t like rules?
