playmobil sweep says: never climb a ladder unless it is properly secured

To heck with America's National Coming Out Day and Week of Cramming Family Values down your throat whether you want it or not, today marks the beginning of the European Week for Health and Safety at Work. This year's theme is dangerous substances (COSSH to its friends). Playmobil Sweep would like to talk to you about the dangers of sweeping chimneys while wearing a plastic top hat, but he doesn't have a mouth, so you'll just have to imagine what he might say.

Speaking of dangerous substances at work, one of my co-workers has abandoned a pear on her desk for, oh about four days now (and it was a bit overripe to start with). I'm photographing it semi-regularly, might make a nice animated gif ...

And since it is coming out day, I might as well join in the fun. I have a closet full of lingerie!

mmm. COSHH. we have a COSHH cupboard at work, when we have to put all the fun stuff when the inspectors come round. And then wonder why we're not allowed certain glues, when the whiteboard markers are so much more fun...

I've gone really strange at times while teaching from whiteboard marker fumes.

whiteboard markers are so much more fun...
Indeed, so fragrant and terribly, terribly comforting at those stressful moments during the working day.

it is a bit weirdly random.

Re: if it's anything like our list
I seem to have touch a collective nostril there. Hmm, that didn;t work, did it?

not just me playing with the internet at 11pm at night, then...

Re: if it's anything like our list
Speaking of which. It's a dead giveaway when you walk around with whiteboard marker on your nostrils.

Definitely one to make your co-workers purse their lips and tut at you under their breath...
