Windfarms in school playgrounds

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Further to my recent correspondence ref the subject title, please see the following article on the subject.

It beggars belief that the oversight authorities in UK schools are banning historical playground games such as conkers, British bulldog, leapfrog etc citing H&S dangers for such bans.

The very same oversight authorities have given approval for the installation of wind turbines in school playground.

Shall we wait for an Aberfan-yype of disaster before we remove these WT from playgrounds?

Worrying report on safety lapses

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please find the EU Health and Safety report ref the subject title. In my view, this report makes very disconcerting reading and confirms my allegations that wind turbine safety in the UK is unacceptable and I call upon my MP to ask the Minister of Energy Mr Ed Davey for an independent review of wind turbine safety. However, I do not accept the HSE have the required honesty and integrity or subject knowledge to conduct any such review, owing to their failures and negligence of the two collapsed WT’s last year in the SW.

When this report is read in parallel with the recent restricted report from the HSE ref the two collapsed Wind Turbines in Devon addressed to Alan M Dransfield, there is evidence that the health and safety of the general public and the WT workforces has been and continues to be seriously compromised.

It is also very disconcerting to learn these Wind Turbines have a life span of 23-30 years only and a large majority of the WT’s do not have adequate Lightning Protection (page 48).

I am of the opinion that any right minded person would be seriously alarmed at the WT industry after reading this attached report.

Polite reminder please that I can hand-carry the two HSE restricted reports to your Exeter Office for photo copying please.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

Dear Sirs

I write to your safety organisation with a view to improving the Lightning Protection System safety within the UK Construction Industry, as I fervently believe Lighting Protection Systems (LPS) safety is not taken seriously be designers, clients, construction companies, local planning authorities etc within the United Kingdom.

The relevant standard is the BS/EN 62305/2008 and I believe this standard is being willfully and flagrantly abused nationwide in the UK with the full knowledge of the Health and Safety Executive. The HSE in the UK have failed their fiduciary duty of care ref LPS in the UK.

In particular the Lightning Risk Assessment requirements of the BSEN standard are being willfully circumvented at sports stadia, shopping complexes, schools, public buildings, hospitals, windfarms, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you ref this very serious matter.

With thanks

Attn the Lord Mayor of London. London Legacy Authority and the Rugby Union Stadium Safety Authority

Dear Sirs

Please see the following ICO decision ref the the Subject Title.

This is the same stadium which is proposed to be used in next year’s Rugby World Cup Finals.

As the ICO decision clearly shows, my FOIA request was refused under National Security, which at best is hogwash and at worst, is designed to assist the passage of silent fraud; I suggest the latter.

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Stadium is proposed to be used without a roof. An analogy would be to launch a cruise ship without an anchor.

The use of this Stadium with a roof is compromising the total capacity of the stadium 80,000 people during a thunderstorm.

For you information, urgent actions and files.

With thanks

Financial worries at Balfour Beattie?

Exeter Chiefs Posted on Fri, December 26, 2014 09:25:01

Email sent 05 November 2014 00:41

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the following article on Balfour Beatty. This makes very disconcerting reading for the Balfour Beatty shareholders, and I would not be surprised to see them go into liquidation in the new year.

In the mean time they press on with their plans to use the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Stadium which is devoidof any Lightning Protection System Safety.

It would automatically follow the Stadium would be operating in a legal void.

In the event that Balfour Beatty should go Bankrupt, I am sure the Coalition Government will be delighted with the multi billion pound payout needed nationwide.

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield.
