Off topic, but related. I had a repair man here yesterday to fix a not-working water pump, and the fix involved both plumbing and electrical work. I remarked that he had to be an electrician as well as a pump repairer, and he said that before he could obtain his pump repair qualification he was required to do a course, and then be assessed for competence, covering how to insert a three pin plugAgree, but where to get the bucket without someone injuring themselves carrying it.Simple - you fill in a Requisition. This is then passed through OH&S, Finance, Stores and Transport, before retracing its steps to where it came in.
The bucket will be delivered in an estimated 3 to 4 weeks, and an Induction course will be held to teach the appointed Bucketer how to handle it.
The Bucketer must then undergo training in the use of the tap, and exactly where to place the bucket for maximum effect.
The filled bucket will then be weighed, the appropriate OH&S rule found, and sufficient Assistant Bucketers will be appointed to carry it so that YM-Mundrabilla's concern about injury is fully covered.
By now, it will be found that some enterprising person emptied the kettle on to the sleeper about a month ago, and the fire is out.
The Bucket Team must then return the water to the tap to avoid wastage, and return the bucket to whence it came, complete with the applicable form stating clearly why the thing is no longer needed.
An internal enquiry will then be convened to get to the bottom of it all, and the enquiry will conclude that nobody is responsible.
Two hundred copies of the Minutes of the enquiry will then be distributed to prove that work is actually taking place.
(And yes; I have been influenced by the Goons and Monty Python.)
