The Health and Safety Inspector goes to the movies

Report 16th July
  • Location: Wayne Manor subterranean facilities
  • Type of environment: Office/laboratory/cave
  • Number of employees: 2
  • Risk assessments completed? no

Recommendation: Risk assessments to be carried out including risk of possible infection from previously-mentioned bat dung.
