Church set to buy winding machine amid safety worries

A church clock in Stanton St John has been wound by hand for 200 years, though now officials are poised to purchase a winding machine amid health and safety fears, which could cause the introduction of new safety signage.

The system will cost £3,000 and the money needed for it is expected to come from parishioners at St John the Baptist church. Its decision to search for a machine was prompted by worries that the European Commission would place restrictions on manual lifting, reports the Oxford Mail.

The Reverend Stevie Cross, the vicar of St John's, told the newspaper: "The clock is working perfectly and we are grateful to the volunteer who regularly winds this for us."

A report by HR Magazine recently noted that the British Safety Council (BSC) has met with Ragnar Lofstedt as part of his review into health and safety regulations.

Mr Lofstedt was handed evidence from 8,000 of the BSC's corporate members.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800625871-ADNFCR
