A recent post on Facebook about a coffee cart at Fieldays highlighted some real challenges about rest and meal breaks.
Tired employees are dangerous. They can make mistakes that could be fatal. As an Employer you are required to allow and ensure your team can take breaks to rest the body and the mind. Rested workers are more productive and in turn, safer.
It is often easier in concept than reality, especially if you run a small business, where there is just you and one other employee, or you own a retail shop where your employee works alone while you are only on site a few hours a day, or a busy café when the break times are the busiest times for customers.
