Rats!

LU workers and contractors who risk coming into contact with rats and mice in bin rooms and machines chambers are meant to be issued with medical briefing cards about leptospirosis (Weil's disease).

Some AGS agency cleaners on the Bakerloo, Central, and Victoria Lines have been denied these cards. AGS say it's Interserve's responsibility to provide them; Interserve say the agency must do it. Tubeworker would like to knock AGS and Interserve's proverbial heads together. Their buck-passing is putting cleaners' health at risk.

Ultimately however the buck stops with the contract provider. It's LU's responsibility to make sure anyone working on its premises is given access to the relevant safety information. LU must tell Interserve to pull its finger out and ensure that all it's cleaners - whether directly employed or agency - have access to the right health and safety info.
