ASDA UNION GMB UPDATE FOR HOT WEATHER

ASDA union GMB hot weather update

Make sure managers are meeting their duty of care.

Just a few thoughts on what we can do to help one another in the heat:

  • Ensuring members are carrying resealable water bottles.

  • Agreeing extra breaks on behalf of Porters and Warehouse colleagues (see Hot Weather Guidance attached)

  • Porters and drivers must avoid direct sunlight for long periods. Hats, Lip Protector and Sunscreen should be available to them as PPE.

  • Remind drivers that entering properties is at their own discretion. Large blocks of flats may need to be avoided to prevent over exertion.
