    this happened in 1966, things were very different back then, for one we don't have any working coal mines now, most are shut some are museums.
    no "health and safety" back then.

    Good morning Lonewolf,

    Disregarding the type of resource, would you say that occupational / industrial safety programs in the UK are now developed because of this (and other) disasters ?

    I think so, but they have gone to far the other way now and you cant do anything because of "elf and safety". I think that's one reason there are so many "snowflakes" scared of everything and anything these days.

    Good afternoon Lonewolf,

    It's about the same here but Trump is changing much of the nonsense.

    The occupational safety field became a BIG aspect of US society and morphed into requiring certified persons only to clear a debris field. Following occupational safety was the big move to recognize the disabled. The law is the "Americans With Disabilities Act". To be an ADA Compliance Officer requires a long and expensive course.

    Both of these programs are good moves in the right direction but they were "taken over" by political interests with their own agendas.

    Trump has already started to change this. Virginia is the lead experimental state - not because of Virginia being much different than most other states but because it is next to D.C. and the key figures can meet in person. An example: If someone took a course on artificial respiration years prior or was in the military and cleared debris fields, they are allowed to do aforesaid during emergencies as long as they are prudent and remain within the skill-level they have.

    Many, many, many "interests" have rice bowls - with quality beverages - to protect. These "interests" hate us.
