Get-out clause; bought on by - Tradução em português

Health and safety rules should have a get-out clause

In 2008, Alison Hume, a 44-year-old lawyer and mother of two, fell down a disused mine shaft, suffering a collapsed lung and several broken bones. Although Strathclyde Fire and Rescue arrived swiftly, she was left for eight hours because the senior officer present refused to stray from guidelines, stating that they were only allowed to winch other fire personnel to safety. Finally pulled up by a mountain rescue team, Ms Hume suffered a heart attack bought on by hypothermia and died. Public fury would suggest that its not only Ms Hume's family who believe the fall alone wasn't responsible for her death, and that "health and safety" should be in the dock.

Health and safety rules should have a get-out clause (an escape clause)

In 2008, Alison Hume, a 44-year-old lawyer and mother of two, fell down a disused mine shaft, suffering a collapsed lung and several broken bones. Although Strathclyde Fire and Rescue arrived swiftly, she was left for eight hours because the senior officer present refused to stray from guidelines, stating that they were only allowed to winch other fire personnel to safety. Finally pulled up by a mountain rescue team, Ms Hume suffered a heart attack bought on by hypothermia (a heart attack brought on by hypotermia) and died. Public fury would suggest that its not only Ms Hume's family who believe the fall alone wasn't responsible for her death, and that "health and safety" should be in the dock.
