Would that be a pair of Slash Proof Gloves (to EN388 standard of course) that the gentleman in the dark suit is wearing?

If so, I can only say that they certainly have taken the issue of Health and Safety well and truly to heart. Most impressed!

We wouldn’t want any work place injuries inflicted by inappropriate handling of that sword would we?

I do hope that we can also assume that (in accordance with Part 2, Section 13 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005) he is cognisant of his obligation to ensure he is not under the influence of any intoxicant such that he might be a danger to himself or others - nor engage in any improper conduct or dangerous behaviour such as horseplay - whilst wielding that potentially lethal sharp bladed implement.

I trust therefore that they didn’t celebrate their well-deserved award with the odd sweet sherry or two!
