A week with Health and Safety Bear

June 15th - 19th 2015 marks Health and Safety Week, we’ve been very lucky to have a visitor to our workshop this week, Health and Safety Bear.

He's been hugely busy supervising and participating in all manner of tasks in the warehouse, here's a quick run-down:


Health and Safety Bear made himself comfortable and got kitted up in his health and safety clothing. He was just a little bit too short to push the sack barrow. Bless.

A day spent mainly observing our boys, Darren and Martin building benches and getting orders out. To prove it’s not all work and no rest we ensured he made time for a tea break.

Our furry friend gets on with a spot of drilling, he’s really rather accurate considering his large paws. As he did so well, he treated himself to an after work game of darts, you can’t beat a bit of bully!

It’s certainly time for some circular sawing! The safety step ladders come in very handy when you’re only 2 feet tall!

Final day for health and safety bear, task one and he’s onto the rubber matting, methodically cutting it to size.

He climbs upstairs onto the mezzanine, it’s a long way up those stairs for a small bear.

As a reward for his hard work this week, we allowed him a trip to a local friendly pub, The Fat Cat.

The remainder of the afternoon was spent testing out the forklift truck.

It's been a pleasure to have Health and Safety Bear with us and we can’t wait for him to show us lot’s more of his skills soon.
