They may not seem the most obvious of dangers.
But scattered twigs and slippery leaves are now considered a hazard.
Children as young as four are swapping their uniforms for high visibility vests, hardhats and clipboards as they become health and safety inspectors.

Why don’t they give each of them a rake & a broom
What is so special about the handful of ‘inspectors’? Unless they are being groomed for jobs in the NANNY STATE.
Why not send all the kids out at together and just tell them to ‘be careful’? It is, after all, the teacher’s responsibility to monitor them. Guess she/he will just stay in the class room on the computer.
They might be better served to be warned about pedophile predators.
Just what I have thought all along.. trees are EVIL. They drop twigs and slippery leaves. Health hazards!!! (/s tag... but do I really have to?)
A thousand years under the yoke of Islam will be a well deserved lesson.
So “King of the Hill” on the parking lot snow plow piles is frowned upon?
Maybe a couple of the little tikes should band together and form an insurance company to protect their classmates from such “risks”.
At least they’d learn a bit about capitalism.
Of course, I’m sure the school would then demand that everyone was entitled to compensation (it’s a “human right” doncha know) whether or not they took out a policy, so the insurance tikes would quickly be bankrupt.
So then they’d learn a bit about socialism too.
Not only that, but they are creating and imprinting a “victim mentality” in the minds of the young skulls of mush.
