Icy Conditions

Quite a number of employees have complained to Health & Safety Reps about the icy conditions in the car park recently. This has been taken up with site facilities.
UNITE’s priority is to ensure that staff can safely get to and from work, not a focus on whether or not the gritting contractor has complied with their contract. Regardless of whether they had or not, the result was clearly unacceptable.
If you experience any slips in the car park, please make sure you report them to site facilities and copy your Health & Safety rep, whether or not any damage or injury results. If appropriate, you may wish to submit a more formal hazard, incident or accident report to the safety email box. Reporting issues will be helpful in encouraging site facilities to put measures in place to protect your safety
