Batman versus personal protective equipment

RE: Open health and safety letter to Batman

Dear Batman,

At Reynolds Training, we’re all about health and safety. As such, we’d like to take a moment to thank you for your civic duty in protecting the health of our citizens. Thankyou Batman, thankyou indeed.

Be that as it may, Caped Crusader, we’ve got a bone to pick with you. When battling the demons of the night, you seem averse to good personal protective equipment practice. Sure, when you’re cracking a riddle or fighting a penguin, you need to think on your feet.

But workplace complacency around ppe can be equally, if not more so, dangerous than the foes you fight. Take Mr Freeze, for instance. When engaged in cold-blooded battle, Batman, ask yourself this: am I wearing the right ppe to work in a cold room environment? Well, are you?

Freeze, for all of his evil-doings, is in fact kitted out in a protective cryogenic suit. If the villain of this piece is personal protective equipment compliant, then surely our heroic winged protector should be too?

Holy golden personal protective equipment

Batman, let us summarise. You are a role model to workers around the world. We therefore implore you to clip the tools of personal protective equipment to your batbelt. Be our heroic winged protector and safety role model. Is that too much to ask?

Kind regards
