Or maybe you should ask yourself whether that's a good attitude for a marshal to carryCedy wrote:They should be banned, it make marshaling a little less enjoyable.
Then maybe they don't have quite the skill level required for a street skate and need more practice. I mean, if all it takes is a whistle to make them stack...Cardo wrote:And when blown all of a sudden, people around... can be stunned and cause stacks.

So what are you saying Luke? That if somebody whistles too close to you, then you'll actually assault them, maybe knocking them over? And this, from one of the people who (presumably) implores others to "skate safely"?Look no Skywater wrote:...I have elbowed inconsiderate tossers in the past for blowing them near my ears and am completely prepared to do so again. No more warnings.

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 replace the Noise at Work Regulations 1989 (except for the music and entertainment sectors where the 1989 Regulations will continue to apply until 6 April 2008). The level at which employers must provide hearing protection and hearing protection zones is now 85 decibels (daily or weekly average exposure) and the level at which employers must assess the risk to workers' health and provide them with information and training is now 80 decibels. There is also an exposure limit value of 87 decibels, taking account of any reduction in exposure provided by hearing protection, above which workers must not be exposed.
The problem is the plonker, not the whistle. If an idiot decides to kick your skates, you're very likely to fall, too.Frannybee wrote:You can choose to skate a bit further away from the music source, but if some plonker blows a whistle right next to your ear, you can't avoid it.

And you can't skate away from the asboxes - the loud and cheerful music follows you everywhere!
So I propose a ban on idiots, not on whistles and music.

Actually, "it" could possibly be construed as one. Voluntary or not, the HSE could easily regard marshals as "employees" of LondonSkate, because they are acting under the instructions of said organisation, in carrying out their marshalling duties. Therefore the route(s) of the Skate(s) could be viewed as their "workplace", which must be "made safe" by their employers (LS). Even though members of the public who have joined the Skate(s) are not "employees", it could also be argued (in court) that the organisers of the Skate still have a Duty Of Care towards them.I know it's not a workplace...
Aaaaaahhhh... abuse instead of arguement, obviously you had no real arguement to offer in the first place, to back up your petty little prejudicesblob wrote:lightnix wrote:Is that a good enough argument, blob?
Yes, but I really can't be bothered to answer such mass of bollo.x talk.
seriously, who are you?
Surprisingly, it's actually happened to me too, a couple of times and NO, it wasn't the most fantastic experience.dan_b wrote:It doesn't matter how much you argue, it's not going to change the opinion of anyone who's had a whistle blown in their ear and didn't enjoy it...
