Royal Mail/Dimensions Uniform, PPE Protective Clothing and Footwear‘Roadshows’ Workplace Visits January & February 2019: (Round 2)
As all Branch Area Health and Safety Representatives will recall, last July/August a very successful trial of Royal Mail/Dimensions Uniform, PPE Protective Clothing and Footwear ‘Roadshow’ Workplace Visits were undertaken and a second round of these visits are now to be undertaken. Royal Mail, Dimensions and the CWU/HQ Health, Safety & Environment Department would very much appreciate the support of Area Health and Safety Representatives and their attendance at the Roadshow visits in ASR Branch areas to give support and engage with the RM Uniform/Dimensions team and members.
Following on from the Royal Mail Assets Stand at last year’s CWU Conference, the National Uniform Manager and Dimensions Representatives conducted a ‘trial of Roadshow visits to eight offices during July/August 2018 including five Delivery Offices, a Mail Centre, an RDC and a Fleet Workshop. The visits were well received and it was agreed then that follow up visits would be made this year and thus round two will now take place.
The idea will be to take along some samples and details of the clothing and footwear range, to talk to frontline staff about the ordering, re-ordering and returns processes, distribute the pocket information “Z-Cards” and generally talk about the range and to answer queries and take feedback.
As the previous visits went so well, Royal Mail Assets will look to continue further visits during 2019.
ASRs are encouraged to visit the offices involved in this round of Roadshows if your area is involved and attend the events, raising any issues with Royal Mail’s National Uniform Manager Sam Dixon and the Dimensions Reps as well as supporting the visits in a joint approach, getting feedback from members on any issues they have.
I would like you to spread the word and encourage your local Unit Reps and front line members to attend the Roadshow visits please. Your support is much appreciated.
Posters will be sent out to each site to display in order to raise awareness amongst the workforce of the impending visit, (blank copy attached).
