ISO 9001, the technical "bible" for all engineering firms, A great system Anti Evil IMO, ensures high safety standards and proper safe guards for
employees and employers alike..
Funny i was having a discussion with a military lawyer not long ago about this topic, I was trying to sell the idea of trade unions In the armed
forces as i am sure you know trade unions are heavily involved in health and safety of its members, He could not get it into his (programed) head that
there should be trade union cover at all levels. The only training given was to officers, And when i suggested that the junior ranks should be
trained in health and safety issues he looked at me as if i was and idiot from another planet..
I tried to tell him of ISO standards but he could not grasp the fact that an ordinary private should receive training in this field..
Imagine if their was a ISO enforced in the UK military how much money and lives could be saved...
