And I forgot to enter a title

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Apparently, the average time off sick for a police officer is something like 7 or 8 days a year, while fight support staff is a day or two more. I’ve never understood why civvies have more time off work than officers unless they fear the consequences less.
All of which means the job must owe me a few months in unaccrued sick leave.
Meanwhile, back at the factory, people are dropping like flies. The condescending emails are being circulated again telling everyone to wash their hands regularly, blow their noses in tissues & put their hand in front of their mouths when they cough.
When staffing levels are so it causes a real problem for everyone else when people go sick. I think they call it resilience. We even have staff responsible for resilience. I’m buggered if I know what they do 8 hours a day (Monday to Friday).

    A close friend of mine visited a police force a few months ago (in a valley near the Thames), and had to use the toilet facilities. The tap was very stiff to turn, which meant with wet hands it was almost impossible to switch the thing off again. I wondered at the time how many of the local staff eventually get fed up of doing battle with the fixtures and fittings every time and end up not bothering.

    Those ‘no water needed’ anti-bacterial hand gels are very useful.

    Get some information on the sick record of PCSO’s.That would make interesting reading.
