No, I didn't.

I have always had helpful and sensible advice from H&SE people. In fact I've been involved with them professionally in a number of areas. They know their stuff.

They also know to facepalm at H&S (no E) numpties in companies who got the job because of their near-OCD and desire to order around people higher up the ladder.

Credit where it's due, it was an H&SE person who once advised me (after the Council told me I couldn't) to put a stack on an exhaust and refer them to me when they complained because "I'm here to help you create a safe workplace, and if I need to overrule stupid planners I will."
