We were on site recently and spotted these handrails. Unfortunately this is not an uncommon problem. Often contractors undertake the installation of handrails themselves without consideration to the required design loadings or correct fixing.
In these cases the handrails have not been core drilled or fixed to a suitable substrate. As you can see the handrails are unstable, which means they are non-compliant and potentially a hazard.

This is what happens when handrails are not installed correctly.
