Re: One week at Bigger Blue.
Explaining health and safety was I always thought an HR thing to do especially with interns or work experience. So one Monday we had a young chap presented to my department to be told that he would be with us for the week. He had a change of clothes in his bag because his mum thought he might not be sitting at a desk the whole time (smart woman). Anyway I asked what he had been told about evacuation procedures and fire alarms etc. His response was 'nothing' which shocked me, he said when prompted that he would just have asked someone what to do.
After pointing out that there might not always be someone around I explained what to do and where the assembly point was etc. After a strong email to HR regarding their inability to do basic health and safety we went into the basement. There we looked at the patch bays we'd be tidying up as today's exercise.
