Council Worker Injured Erecting Health and Safety Signs

A council worker in the UK is suing for compensation after injuring himself while erecting health and safety signs.

The Leicester City Council worker was putting up notices warning members of the public to be careful in the ice and snow when he...slipped in the ice and snow.

Leicester City Council has agreed to settle the case out of court and has ordered 150 pairs of slip-on shoes with studs for winter weather to prevent similar incidents in the future.

Alanis Morissette allegedly considered using this exact same scenario in her hit song "Ironic," but later dropped the lyrics "It's like erecting a health and safety sign and then falling over and injuring your back" because they were already copyrighted.
