That's damn weird. I read of the same thing happening in Queensland a number of months ago. I think it's all bulldust.

The one in Qld was two Traffic coppers had set up a radar site and were told to move it by one of the Workcover Inspectors (or Qld equivienlt) because they hadn't done any danger analysis etc on the site - caused a bit of a stir - but rules is rules.

Well! If high visibility clobber contributes so miuch to a lower accident rate (no doubt it does) it must surely be only a matter of time 'till we are required to drive only rigs painted in "High Visibility" paints..You'll need your shades on when finding the car in KMart car park on a sunny day..

Yeah maybe we can convince Mr Harold Grubby that our bullbars are safe if we paint them fluro yellow and wrap some nice reflective tape around in places! haha! Or maybe that's the problem - maybe ALL pedestrians should be made to wear hi-vis gear when anywhere near a road! ;-) hehe!

Apparently one of the work cover inspectors here (Narrabri) did exactly the same thing about six years ago.

True story,
at the ACME field days at Alansford about 2 years ago workcover had been inspecting some of the marquees around the site to ensure they were safe, particularly as it was quite windy as it sometimes gets near Warrnambool. Lo and behold, whose marquee do you think is the one and only to fall over? yes, 1 marquee and nearly 500 exhibitors???? the marquee of the Victorian Workcover Authority.........

funny, just had a organisational safety circular relating to the same thing (no fine) regarding an emergency services worker in WA?

next it will be complusory for parents and children out the front of schools to wear them. Wouldn't be such a bad idea for the kids though!
