Do they not have a duty of care for my safety, and do these incidents not come under foreseeable incidents under health and safety of staff. In the past we have had staff attacked and the previous management put things in place to protect us, ie safe parking, taken home, taken to different bus stops. Only within the last 3weeks we have removed drunks from the civic were staff were threatened, these drunks are some times in the under passes we walk through, also we have with the police escorted protesters from the civic protesting about the bedroom tax. We deal with a lot of CCtv footage for the police this includes murders, drug dealers, threats with violence, armed robbery, we have been chased from court by family members the list could go on and on, this is why I feel they have a duty of care to me not just at work but also on the way to my car because of the nature of the job.
If the law says not then I will just have to be lucky
Thank you for being honest, that's what I needed to know the truth, not the lies some people had came out with, once again thank you. I will just have to stay lucky
Thank you for the answer, the lads and lasses not happy when I told them this morning, but they have to accept it. If we are not covered by the law then so be it. Thank you again .
