Marston's at Hoddesdon (Hertfordshire) The crews have to collect old cooking oil from pubs,restaurants etc
Is this not against Health and Safety??
There is no safety gear for oil spillage,eg grit/sand etc on board the trucks.
Some days you can pick up anything upto 12-15 drums
As the drums do very often leak, turn over etc leaving the flat bed of the truck thick with oil.And this remains constant on the flatbed.The load very often does shift all over the truck.The crews do get oil all over their work clothes.The management do not even provide aprons!
