Health and Safety Facility Time

28 Jul 2020

DWP has written to PCS to say that they will agree that health and safety facility time can continue to be classed as official duty until 31 August 2020 but with the following qualifications:

“Only time spent undertaking the remaining JCFRA discussions and those in connection with risk assessments for 8 - 8 and Saturday operating hours will be treated as official time.

This time must be specifically requested via local management; this is not a blanket approval for H&S reps to refuse to do any departmental duties for the duration.”

Management had said they are concerned at the numbers of health and safety reps who have used this facility to say they are 100% health and safety reps and so are unable to do any official duty.
