Implementing a 9 day working pattern

AWE is implementing a 9 day working fortnight working pattern across its sites at Aldermaston and
Burghfield from 17th August 2015.

This will support the company's drive to improve the management and use of equipment, facilities and
processes in support of core programme delivery.

This new way of operating will see a working pattern of Monday to Friday in week 1 and Monday to
Thursday in week 2. The total hours worked over the two week period are unchanged.

This means, that the site will be closed for routine business on a non-working Friday.
The first non-working Friday will be the 28th August and then every other Friday thereafter.

AWE's on-site emergency responders will continue to provide a 24/7, 365 days a year service to assure
the safety and security of the sites.

During non-working Fridays, silent hours and the weekend period, people are advised to call the main
AWE switchboard number 0118 981 4111 with urgent enquiries which will continue to be answered at all
times.
