The trade union official will be allowed access subject to any site specific security and safety requirements for that location or site. Any site specific requirements will be confirmed prior to the visit taking place. Access will be allowed during official break/rest periods. The trade union official will act in such a way so as not to disturb the break/rest period of those who chose not to engage with them or affect normal site activities.
