‘Spit kit’ trial needed to stop disgusting act

Apr 7, 2015News

The RTBU was in the media today calling for a trial of ‘spit kits’ for transport workers.

The Loco Division, and other workplace areas, have had a disturbing number of reports of workers being spat at while on the job.

The spit kits work by allowing workers to collect a sample of the saliva, which can then be given to police to test against DNA databases.

The system has been in place in the UK for around a decade, and all reports suggest the disgusting act has decreased since their introduction.

The Loco Division will continue to push for a trial of the kits to protect workers.
