A good set of photos Darren and good to see a lineup like this of DBs. Regarding the dozer that "fell" off the float, it must have been sitting directly on the steel deck. Conveyor belting or timber should always be used between steel decks and tracks to prevent this happening along with a good set of chains.

John WPHS is a distinctly Australian fixation, our European friends don't seem to go for it :)

Hello John & Mitch.

WPHS ?? Work Place Health & Safety ??

Actually, in defence of our HSE (Health & Safety Executive), we have some of the strictest regulations. It's just that, (and I have to be very careful here, our Irish Friends have just been very hospitable to the Club Staff over this last weekend) that our cousins across the water take a more pragmatic view of some of these things.

I think it's all down to interpretation. If they see a regulation that is going to spoil their day in any way then they interpret that rule with a certain, shall we say, laissez-faire. :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

That's it David, I actually prefer the Euro style when it comes to regulation, that said a death on the worksite is a most horrible thing. A field day like you guys have just had deserves a pragmatic view though to my mind. Hope they got the old tractor back onboard with little damage.

Health and Safety is taken very seriously over here but as Scooby says there is times when we would tend to overlook some things. The dozer was only on the low loader at the show for display, it was transported there by a different artic. The show organisers are quite strict with there h&s rules and the public were not allowed near moving vehicles in the parade or the mishap could have ended up a lot worse.

You guys would be amazed what happens at the Werktuigendagen in Belgium. Tractors and machinery running and manouvring around with people walking by at a couple of meters or closer. Wouldn't want to be a driver on that event! You need eyes everywhere.
I guess it would be a real nightmare for the H&S department in the UK.
There's a few pictures in these albums that will make the H&S guy's hair rise!

On topic : nice pictures, seems that there were a lot of DB's and a decent sized crowd at the event.

I should clarify my comments more relate to continental Europe where my brother worked for 10 years on ship building in Holland. WPHS was as Denbute describes 'you need eyes everywhere'. Obviously the little islands off the coast of Europe have it sorted when it comes to health and safety.

As Darren will testify, the club shop operates under the very strictest of H&S rules at all times.....apart from one nasty 'tea burn' to the upper mouth cavity and a biro stuck in Mikey's ear we all came through pretty well....

Chris, the only thing I can pull you up on regarding the club's health and safety rules was not handing out ear plugs prior to Mike's singing in the hotel, it was enough to cause permanent damage to the eardrums. lol :lol: :lol:
