It's not just health and safety at work though. It runs throughout daily lives. Think scooter riders and passengers. Whole families piled on and the only crash helmet between the rider's feet. Car drivers and passengers without seat belts, driver on phone, children and babies in the front unsecured. Drivers without a licence driving unroadworthy cars.

I've seen women wanting to cross a busy road shove pushchairs out into the traffic to stop it.

In many cases there is already legislation in place but until those that are empowered to enforce do so without exception these dangerous practices will continue.
It is not only about enforcement, it is about people deciding to follow the rules. In the UK we follow the guidance of legislation because we are as a society socialised to do so. Education is the way forward, public education films, leaflets and teaching kids in school how to make informed choices about risk.

Whilst I disagree with the current Turkish governments religious stance. I do not see the connection between this and Health and Safety. The disregard of Health and Safety was there long before this Erdogan got into power.

Re: Many reported injured in Istanbul shop blast

A secular government should and must spend money stipulating and enforcing health and safety in society.

Should a secular government spend one kurus propagating a religion ?

Pays yer money , makes yer choice.

Re: Many reported injured in Istanbul shop blast

the government need to get their priorities right t needs money to educate and money to enforce standards
The Diyanet ie Ministry for Religious Affairs has a massive budget of over 4 billion it gets more funding than the Health Dept more than the Education Department more than security etc etc

Religion is more important than the welfare of people in this country today ...and my comparison in the light of where the country is spending its citizens taxes is relevant

Diyanet ? a state within the state | What's up, Turkey?
