Santa falls foul of ‘Elf and Safety!!!

So ‘Elf and Safety AND the Environmentalists are now after Santa :

“Santa and the elves, as producers of electrical and electronic equipment, should be aware they will have obligations as a result of placing goods on the market, inasmuch as they must adhere to their responsibilities for financing the environmentally sound disposal of them at the end of their usefulness”

Santa’s yuletide activities also clearly come within the current Work at Height Regulations.

Working at height should be avoided where possible, but if it is absolutely necessary then Santa should at least make sure his sleigh has rails to prevent falling out and a ‘fall arrest system’, – such as a safety harness tethered to the sleigh, – installed so that if he does fall he is protected.”

I think we should be relieved that his slay is driven by reindeer or the Carbon Footprint brigade would no doubt have something to add!

Merry Christmas to you and your Other Listener – oh and the numpties as well
