Not accepting shorts/board shorts as workwear
ATTENTION TO ALL INDUSTRIAL WORKERS
We wish to inform all employees that we no longer accept the wearing of shorts/board shorts as workwear in industrial placements.
We would prefer that all Industrial candidates present to work in long drill trousers for their own protection and safety.
Just a few reasons why trousers make sense in the workplace:
- The importance of Sun protection from UV damage in an outdoor workplace or variable conditions.
- The added layer of protection that trousers give Vs bare skin. i.e. debris strike from whipper snippers, grinding sparks, rough vegetation/plants, bare metal edges that can be sharp , chemical splashes, fuel/flammable splashes, hot water or steam contact.
- Our Duty of Care as Employers to provide a safe workplace.
