It appears that a new set of rules drummed up by some Brussels bureaucrats will ban high heels and jewelry in the workplace, require non-slip soles on footwear, and implement the use of elbow-length gloves while shampooing.
All in the name of health and safety, you declare? I doubt it. I wouldn't let anyone near me wearing elbow-length gloves. The mixed message is just too alarming to overlook. It's a wonder that electric hairdryers and scissors haven't also been banned.
What's more is salon owners are being told not to let hairdressers do too many haircuts in one day to prevent "emotional collapses" and workers must be given time during the day for "social dialog", which is fancy terminology for gossip.

Europe will continue to employ agencies to look after agencies that look after everything in the nanny state. Perhaps a little less micromanaging by EU politicos would allow it to climb out of the pit it has fallen into.
