Cabinet Office launches anti-violence campaign

In light of the recent revelations in Bloomberg about the need to be cautious of "flying nokias" and laser printers in Downing Street, the Cabinet Office, in conjunction with leading public sector trade unions, has launched a new internal poster campaign similar to a campaign in the NHS.

It's been reported that Police officers will be requested to cover up their badges when dealing with suspected office abusers.

H&S law dictates that all thrown electrical goods must have the serial number logged, the make, model and be over a year old and only then be switched off, then unplugged and any leads removed and put in a drawer or better still a purpose designated container. All breakable items in the area that the throwing is to take place, removed and stored in a metal cabinet, fixed to the floor or walls, using M8 or larger threaded fixings. All people must stand clear, intended target or not and then the throw, if by an overhead technique (as a throw-in in football, soccer or good old rugger) a hard hat must be worn, along with other items of PPE such as non-slip gloves, eye protector and steel toe-capped boots. If under arm, like a girl throws, a cricket type groin protective device maybe used also.

If the thrower is a cabinet member, ignor the advice above. Simple go to the window above the front door at number 10 Downing Street, open window an place on the window ledge, go to the said door and take one step forward, then shout "All right I'm below it now, can somebody push" If said Item is less than 50 kgs, filing cabinets, tables and haggis maybe used to bulk up the weight....

Would this apply to The Bunker as well?

I would have thought Unite & British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy would be sponsoring this warning sign?
