Agree completely. It is all "lowest common denominator" stuff.
If we tell you that you must wear PPE at all times then it increases the probability that you will be wearing something half-ways appropriate at the time that the sky falls in.
Common-sense ? You can toss that one straight out of the window.

Speaking of which, my pet dislike is the edict (law) to wear safety helmets at all times when in an operating mine.
This one, sensibly, comes straight out of base requirements for underground mines.

But standing in the middle of a 1,000 hectare open pit mine it is hard to see the need.
Where are you Chicken Licken?
