The Myth. Workers are banned from putting up Christmas decorations in the office
Each year we hear of companies banning their workers from putting up Christmas decorations in their offices for “health and safety” reasons, or requiring the work to be done by a qualified person. Most organisations including HSE and local councils manage to put up their decorations without a fuss. They just sensibly provide their staff with suitable stepladders to put up decorations rather than expecting staff to balance on wheelie chairs.
