H&S is a double edged sword.

It can increase costs massively to companies which pay full heed to it, where as cowboys likely will ignore H&S and take some terrific risks.

Last week we had some cowboy builders in the street, working on a large concrete drive they had mucked up in the layout of. There they were, for hours cutting slots in the concrete with a cutter, not using any water to control the dust, massive clouds of dust flying over everyone's cars. Not wearing any PPE - no knee pads, gloves, goggles or even masks.

It wasn't affecting us, apart from the noise and it was a weekend, so pointless getting involved.
