POA Press Releases

PR 102 18 Mar 2015

POA GIVE 28 DAY NOTICE ON HEALTH AND SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS FOR ENGLAND AND WALES PRISONS

The POA have told the Chief Executive Officer Michael Spurr of NOMS that they expect a complete review of Health and Safety risk assessments and safe systems of work. Failing to adhere to the legal requirements the POA will take appropriate steps to advise all POA members what measures they should personally take to prevent or reduce risks to the health and safety of themselves, other prison staff and prisoners.

The POA fully endorse the Justice Committee report and believe it is a damning indictment against the Prisons Board for their handling of a failing and dangerous service that places both staff and prisoners health and safety in danger.

 

End.
