When the cycle of meetings and gum flapping becomes self sustaining without achieving anything other than to increase the size and inertia of the empire being built in the name of H&S, it's time to call a halt and reexamine why we're doing this. In many industries it's become the fastest growing segment and absorbs billions of dollars while doing not a lot more than reiterating the same thing over and over while eating up huge chunks of time in meetings that could otherwise be spent productively.

It has it's place as a streamlined and efficient advisory sector but the proponents have been allowed too much authority which has caused the "industry" to expand into a top heavy monster that feeds on it's own output, much like a self licking lollipop. It has become nothing more than a many headed bureaucratic arse covering exercise.
