An incident has highlighted the risk that shorelines which lay on the ground, pose to members of staff if they become contaminated with dirt, moisture or become damaged.
Estates is taking steps to install support posts at locations where shorelines are currently left lying on the ground when not attached to vehicles.
The posts will allow the shorelines to dangle when not connected to vehicles and ensure the end plugs are remain in a serviceable condition.
Staff are reminded to be cautious of shorelines and any electric cables that are left on the ground as these can become damaged and also pose a trip hazard.
