How does one get trained in the proper way to use a toaster? I have no formal accreditations for this.

CHECK YOUR LOCAL EX-POLY. THEY PROBABLY OFFER A BSC IN TOASTER USAGE.

Are we really at the SOP for a toaster stage in the workplace now?

Fucking hell.

I remember someone a couple of weeks ago it was me, I said it saying we shouldn't turn .gs into the site where we repost any old shite from the Mail? Some people have never used a toaster, so what? And those reptillian cunts would only be hosting an article about the shocking burnt toast scandle if these instructions didn't exist.

It was a poster put up by serco at a hospital. Presumably the type of people working minimum wage for an outsourcing company to serve toast to patients are either so thick and poor that toasters are completely alien to them or they're from some foreign shithole where they probably think it's a toilet and have tried shitting in it.

It's from the sun. Besides, every paper has regular stories on toast because it's serious business.

Oh, begging your Pardon, My Grace, I didn't realise I was dealing with such an intellectual titan as yourself.

You all realise this isn't to do with thick people, it's to do with not wanting to get sued?

Has there ever been a case of someone successfully Suing someone else because they were injured using a toaster and felt that they should have been properly trained to use it?

As with a lot of things that happen in this country, it seems based on what someone has assumed might happen when the reality is that they've just pulled it out of their arse. "We must do X or we might get sued" should read "I think we should do X because I'm afraid we might get sued, based on nothing other than irrational fear convincing me that it's plausible enough to happen".

We do live in a compo culture, but a lot of what happens is the "won't someone think of the children?" equivalent.

PROBABLY NOT, BUT IT'S A LOT CHEAPER TO PRINT OFF SOME POSTERS THAN TO EVER FIND OUT.

Health and safety as a workplace practice is to minimise risk, be it risk of someone hurting themselves, damaging property, and so on. The threat of 'we might get sued' might be a minimal one like you say, but it's entirely plausible (have you had an accident at work that wasn't your fault? no win no fee) so having a clear SOP built into every single thing that is done at your workplace is an effective way to defend against that, while also simply informing everyone.

It might seem ridiculous, to us but as others have pointed out, there's probably a lot of none-british working in these places who might realistically have never used a toaster. Bear in mind most Americans have never used an electric kettle, so I'd not be surprised if Romanians all grill their bread instead of having a separate unit for it.

Undoubtedly. Toasters are a surprisingly common cause of electrocution and fire. Even a relatively minor fire can cause chaos in a hospital due to the difficulty of organising a safe evacuation.
