 Touring Coach Operators

In todays litigious society, people are quick to pick up the phone and call claim solicitors if they feel their holiday has not reached their expectations or events while on holiday have affected them. This could be from the effects of an infectious outbreak of Norovirus. This has already been seen in the cruise & hotel industry many times.
The coach environment holds a potential risk of infectious outbreaks through the close proximity of passengers eating, drinking and using on board toilets, without adequate hand washing facilites and poor cleaning practices.
When passengers board a touring coach they may seem fit and well, but within 24hrs they can become ill from Norovirus. This is know as the incubation period. During this time infectious viral particles can spread very quickly to other passengers and hotels.
Body Spillages & Health And Safety
Micro-organisms found on body spillages are covered under COSSH regulations 2002 as a substance hazardous to health (biological agents).
Assessment should be made of the risks to staff, passengers and equipment/chemicals used to clean or handle body spillages.
Body spillages include vomit, blood, urine, and faeces. They pose a risk, as it is impossible to know what infection any one person has. Blood and vomit pose, the main risk for coach operators as these spillages may contain Norovirus, Hepatitis B or C and HIV.
Therefore the safe clean up and management of body spillages is an important issue for staff and passengers. The correct equipment including personal protective equipment (PPE) should be used at all times when dealing with body spills of any kind. Contact ViRUSafe direct for approved body spillage kits and procedures for coaches and public transport operators.
ViRUSafe supply a range of body spill kits, super absorbent granules, odor nutralisers, and full bespoke infection control kits for touring coaches. More details
What is the Legal Position?

Whilst it is not always possible to prevent an infection coming into the coach environment, it is possible to take reasonable precautions and show due diligence to avoid the risk of harm to passengers.
Failure to take immediate and effective action, may result in a reasonable claim.
The fact that a number of passengers were ill as a result of a known outbreak, is all the proof that is generally needed for a “class action”, and compensation may be received for pain and suffering, and for loss of money with regard expenditure and income. It is likely that the damage will be greater if the operator was aware of the problem and did nothing to control it. This is negligence on the operators part.
It should be noted that a good infection control policy, staff training and hygiene procedures reduce the operators liability.
N.B. This is not a definitive legal opinion and the Courts remain the final arbiter of legislation.
