Health and Safety Effects
David Sherry: A-Z of Health and Safety
David Sherry came to Huntly from Northern Ireland via Glasgow, with his wife Laura and son Peter in winter 2010.
Health and safety concerns impact on us all. They affect the way we live, work and interact with increasing authority. Initially developed to facilitate the safe execution of commonplace activities such as going to school, to work or taking part in leisure pursuits, all areas are affected by health and safety regulations today.
During his residency David took a wry look at health and safety and how the issue affects our lives. Illuminating some of the associated facts and myths, he asked the question 'to what extent have these public safety concerns started to regulate our choices as individuals?'
Health and Safety Effects, a publication including the A-Z of Health and Safety, an essay by Neil Mulholland and an interview with David Sherry by Claudia Zeiske has been produced and is available from our shop.
