Work Time Listening and Learning (WTLL) Sessions – Safety Messages & Maximum Number of Items

Work Time Listening and Learning (WTLL) Sessions – Safety Messages & Maximum Number of Items:
To: All Branches
Dear Colleagues,
During recent joint Royal Mail Group (RMG)/CWU Joint Safety Campaign Weeks on Dangerous Dogs, Fire and Road/Driver Safety, an important part of each campaign week is obviously ‘joint communications’ and the subject matter headlining WTLL workforce briefings. A number of ASRs have pointed out that the WTLL sessions have at times been swamped with a number of subjects to the extent that safety messages are being lost in the morass.
The issue has been raised with RMG Comms and a positive response has been received which is summarised as follows:-
• RM Comms have taken the ASRs feedback on board.
• WTLLs will be limited to 3 items per week to ensure managers and consequently CWU members aren’t bombarded with heavy content and key messages aren’t lost.
• The vast majority of the time, one of the 3 items will be a safety brief.
• Any overload is coming from local level and should be raised with local management.
• A safety segment is included in RMTV weekly which doesn’t happen for any other business function.  
• RM Comms are making efforts to condense messages so that managers are not overloaded and to avoid duplication.
• When Work Time Listening and Learning (WTLL) was re-launched, RM Group Comms made it clear that WTLL briefs should only be sent through the national channel. If a manager is receiving briefs from any other source, they do not have to share them!
In conclusion, if any ASR feels that members are being swamped with WTLL subjects and safety messages are being lost then it should be raised at the H&S Committee and if no progress is made then it should be progressed through the health and safety disputes escalation procedure as per RMG SHE Standard 5.1. Thanks to those ASRs who raised this issue.
Yours sincerely
Dave Joyce
National Health, Safety & Environment Officer
