Time and motion
WHEN you gotta go, you gotta go, but that doesn't mean the toilet break should not be subject to the attentions of the time and motion men.
Shipyard IHI Marine United is reported to have been scrutinising worker movements to such an extent that it has come up with a 'toilet commuting index' revealing trips to the toilet take up between 7%-17% of worker 'travel time'.
