Safe cleaning of pool cars.

We’ve had some enquiries about the cleaning of pool cars safely to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and how that affects staff.

Is it the employees’ job or is it up to maintenance to do? – These are important questions that hadn’t been thought about by the department.

We’ve asked them these questions and they’re pulling together draft COVID-19 health and safety and reporting plans in advance of the June deadline, along with a range of other issues we raised including that they need a plan for vehicles.

It’s thanks to the great work of HACSU delegates that these oversights are now being addressed.
