Advent Calendar Day Twenty Four: Health & Safety Myths – Myth Twelve

Myth

The Chef at a carvery restaurant refused to serve the customer some skin off the turkey on the grounds of health and safety. The Chef said it was a ‘choking hazard’.

Reality

This is blatantly an excuse and is not a real health and safety issue. Whilst the chef has a duty to consider the health and safety of his customers this decision assumes they have no common sense. His response is completely disproportionate.
