This daredevil high heeled cleaning lady was spotted on the 3rd floor of the Department of Taoiseach cleaning a window this week. Armed with a cloth and a bottle of window cleaner she proceeded to clean the outside of the window while perched on the 3rd floor window ledge.

A spokeswoman for the Department confirmed that the woman was a staff member and stated 'This is a one off occurrence and the staff member in question has been reminded of their obligations under the Safety, Health and Welfare Act.'

Luckily no one was hurt in the incident, but it serves as a reminder how important health and safety awareness and training is for staff.
