Health and Safety...

There didn’t appear to be too much awareness of health and safety on the factory floor, you simply generally did as you were told and did not ask questions. However, after one young girl managed to cut her foot open on broken glass while wearing summer sandals, we were all given leaflets from a sturdy shoe manufacturer and were encouraged to buy a pair. In reality, these shoes were far too expensive for most of the workers and we just didn’t bother.

At one point I believe that the firm were fined for polluting the river after shampoo pallets accidently fell into the water (I expect there’s some information in the local newspaper archives regarding the matter).
