A HIGHLY SKILLED ROLE SUFFERING
FROM HIGH STAFF TURNOVER
The tasks carried out during depollution are highly skilled and involve numerous hazardous activities. Despite being relatively high risk, some perceive this essential role as a low-paid entry position within the industry, and as such, there is a high turnover of staff due to lack of training and appreciation, poor equipment, unrealistic work targets and a high chance of injury. This attrition rate means that ELV operatives spend little time in role becoming experienced, and therefore the sector is suffering from a significant lack of proficient staff.
