I dont believe the World has gone mad, it's gone greedy. "Where there's blame there's a Claim" so to stop people from doing so they have gone over the top with health and safety. Well at least that's what I think.

They have gone overboard with certain aspects of the legislation Jon

To any right thinking person health and safety legislation is way over the top but there are some people out there with the intelligence of yeast. There are a lot more morons around than you'd believe, people who do actually need to be told that a jar of peanut butter may contain nuts.

Most of my safety equipment comes with a booklet, it usually details what the product is designed to protect you from and to what degree.
As mentioned earlier in the thread there are also usually a large number of disclaimers and limitations of liability in half a dozen languages, along the lines of 'should this product completely fail to fulfill its purpose we will wriggle like eels if you take us to court" or "any liability is limited to the value of the cardboard packaging that the product is supplied in".....and other such attempts to negate responsibility for their product.
