More public 'Service' gross incompetence

"Family members of lost miners could be seen laughing and shaking their heads during the cross examination of a Department of Labour health and safety inspector in an inquiry today..."

Link here:

I can confirm from my experiences in an unrelated industry, that the so-called 'inspectors' sent out to persecute inspect industry are totally and profoundly incompetent, ignorant, uneducated and arrogant. To the point of not knowing details understood by a trainee of some weeks experience. Not knowing the characteristics of common chemicals used throughout the industry, for example.  Not even believing the Material Safety Data Sheets, when they are thrust under their noses.

And, of course, not spotting the obvious hazards that are conveniently ignored...

Indeed, not an uncommon experience.
