"Horseplay" on BBC premises

Currently waiting for a response from British Broadcasting Corporation, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

By "horseplay" I refer to the practice of unauthorised fooling around in the work place, which can include running, jumping, playing of pranks, racing, competing, grabbing, unwanted physical contact and incorrect use of facilities and equipment.

It is my experience that most employers have a strict policy that prevents horseplay on their premises at all times and which usually includes details of appropriate punishments for the perpetrator(s). I have looked through BBC Safety's web pages (https://www.bbc.co.uk/safety/) but I cannot find anything that specifically refers to misbehaviour of the type I describe above.

I would be grateful if you would provide me with the BBC's policy on such behaviour on BBC premises. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A Willmore
