There are a number of dirty jobs in your workplace, whether you are at work or on a casual errand.
Here are some tips for dealing with them.
The office is not a safe space.
“I am always careful in the office because I feel very comfortable and comfortable around people who don’t know what they’re doing,” says Julie Gonsalves, a director at HR company HRV.
“It is not an environment where people can feel comfortable, it is a place where you are not really sure what you are doing.”
The good news is, you can work from anywhere in your home.
“When you work remotely, the workplace is not just a place to be alone, it’s a place that is your home,” says Gonsals.
“So if you work from home, I would encourage you to use your personal space.”
You may not be allowed to wear clothing in public.
You are not allowed to be seen in public, nor to wear anything that can be considered a revealing piece of clothing.
This includes the shorts and T-shirts worn by workers in the industrial kitchen or in the gym.
You can be sacked for wearing inappropriate clothing.
“You are not entitled to wear any inappropriate clothing if it is not offensive,” says Dr Gonsaly, a consultant at the Centre for Health & Safety.
“What you can wear and what you can’t wear is a very complex matter that is governed by a range of factors, including cultural, health, gender and safety guidelines.”
This means that if you wear a suit, you may be asked to take it off.
If you are wearing a suit in the workplace, you are allowed to go to the office to change.
However, this is only allowed in public areas where the workers are not at the office.
Your office is open 24 hours a day.
“Even though you are only working 24 hours, your office can still be closed for other business reasons,” says the HRV director.
“For example, there may be a company meeting or you may need to work from a break, which could mean leaving your computer or phone behind.”
The environment is not always welcoming.
“If you are in a situation where you feel uncomfortable, don’t be afraid to get out of the office and to talk to someone,” says Ms Gonsale.
“People can help you, you might even get a job.
It is the workplace as a whole that is the problem.”
You must be honest and respectful.
“The only way to be in a good working environment is to be honest, to show respect and to treat people with dignity,” says Gilles Gonsales, a senior manager at HRV, which advises HR companies on workplace culture.
You need to be aware of your boundaries.
“Everyone in the organisation should know that they are in their own space,” says Mr Gonsaler.
“In order to do that, they should be aware that they cannot wear clothing or have any type of intimate contact, like touching people, touching their genitals, touching a toilet or their private parts, touching your desk.”
This includes looking in your boss’s direction.
“This is a way of getting yourself to feel safe,” says Professor Gonsasal.
“But there is no way to stop this from happening in your own office.
You cannot just leave it alone.”
If it is the first time you have had to deal with this issue, make sure you get professional help.
“We all need to know how to protect ourselves from situations where inappropriate behaviour can happen,” says Miss Gonsala.
“Be prepared to discuss it with your supervisor and get professional advice, which can help if you feel like you are being punished or don’t want to talk about it.”
Some people may be hesitant to talk, but if you can be trusted to speak to someone, they will understand and listen to what you need to tell them.”
If this happens to you, it will help if the organisation offers a training or a workshop for employees.
“Being a leader at a company is a wonderful thing,” says Ellen Gonsalia, who works in HRV’s global HR department.
“However, if you are a person who feels that you are making a mistake, it can be hard to say that you have done something wrong.”
You should talk to your HR manager to find out what to do next.
