HSE eBulletin: Guidance for drivers on access to welfare facilities.

19/3/2020

The HSE has published a bulletin for drivers (and operators) regarding the importance of access to washing facilities for visiting drivers. 

HSE eBulletin: Guidance for drivers on access to welfare facilities.

All drivers must have access to welfare facilities in the premises they visit as part of their work.

We are hearing reports that some drivers are not being allowed to use welfare facilities when they deliver. Preventing access is against the law, equally it's not the sensible thing to do. 

Drivers must have access to welfare facilities in the premises they visit as part of their work. Those who already provide reasonable access to toilets and handwashing facilities should continue to do so.

With the latest advice for hands to be washed regularly, failure to allow access to welfare facilities may increase the risk of the COVID-19 infection spreading.
