The HSE Mythbusters Challenge Panel has once again triumphed over stupid local rulings

More power to them, not before time something like this was operating.

Heavens to Murgatroyd! They have a department for the application of common sense...?

Sounds like someone invented this as an excuse to stop this activity in case the children pressed too hard and broke the glass. HSE get blamed for all sorts of silly ideas

I suppose this verdict took some time to reach a conclusion, and cost a small fortune to reach that conclusion.

HondaMan seems to have the ideal suggestion about possible breakage.

Bit like some of our local school's telling parent's that they cannot drive vehicles onto school property, because of the possibility that a child will get knocked down. Yet at the same time, the teacher's and deliver driver's are exempt from this ruling!.

But it is not an HSE myth, nor any other sort of myth.

It is an real incident that that the HSE have debunked and it actually appears on their website.
