'not all enforcers of health and safety are "jobsworths"'

Doubtless... I was thinking of one in particular, an encounter that provoked me into putting the boot on the other foot and starting a much more pro-active policy about testing, insurance, documentation, contracts and general professionalism on our side. It was the only time we were actually asked to show proof of PAT testing; it's often stipulated in documentation but not actually checked.

We've also encountered the office admin types who need bits of paper, tick boxes and I'm sure don't check details or even understand what they mean or whether they are relevant, just doing what they are told.
