All joking aside, H & S whether we like it or not, is a necessary tool, but IMHO needs to be used wisely.
A company I used to work for at LHR (baggage repatriation) had a H & S 'officer' for a while. He caused more delays to our operations than I care to remember, and the company eventually deleted the position. As we were a fairly small outfit the solution was that the bosses got us all together and we were reminded of our individual responsibilities and from then on everything worked out fine. The fact is that all the sensible policies were adhered to and in the five years following, after which the company passed into new ownership and I left along with many others, we had no safety issues whatever.
Good luck John; I am sure you will make a very good job of it all!
