Just as point of interest with collapsing of walks in the Great Yarmouth office and given extra miles to walk each week .. In the realms of Health and Safety .. Is there an agreed union LIMIT of the amount of miles posties are expected to a walk a day. .. 5 miles a day over 25 years service is near to 30,000 miles walked. as an example 10 miles a day 60,000
We all know that no other profession walks the amount of miles a week that posties do... Leg and Feet issues are not helped by introducing extra miles a week... on anyone 50 years plus old..
So is there an agreed Maximum limit and if not ..Logically why not.. on health and safety grounds... as more walking is now being required
