The European Commission are having a public consultation on the Working Time Directive. This includes issues such as working hours, periods between shifts, on call, and derogations.

The PFEW Health and Safety sub-committee will be submitting a corporate response but I would ask that this is brought to the attention of all officers and they be encouraged to provide their personal feedback where it is asked for.  Even if their response only clarifies that the current regulations work well for the police and no change is needed it will evidence their position.

Please note that all responses need to be completed by the 14th of March 2015
