'Speedos' - saving money for the taxpayer?

I've been so busy lately and have not had time to blog. Will get back to it shortly. In the meantime: Once again - Prague.

While enjoying a coffee in a riverside cafe, our notice was drawn to some repairs being made to the river wall with some very heavy granite blocks. There were three men working on this task, the 'boss' the man 'dressed' in what look like 'Speedo' swimming togs and open toed sandals. This man was older than the other men and the example he was setting was less than safe. Imagine if ...............................


A large crane was lifting the blocks from another barge and these men were directing where it should be placed.




Mind your toes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! as well as......................................



Now safely landed but not quite in the final position.
This work made for some interesting viewing while having our coffee.

Could our government save money on Health and Safety in the workplace by supplying Speedos and sandals instead of safety clothing and hard toed shoes?
