An Environmental Protection Agency in Colorado, has asked its employees to stop defecating in the hallways because it was a safety hazard, according to an official email sent to employees.
Specifically, officials asked employees to clean up their act, in and out of the bathroom.
The email was sent to employees at the EPA office in Denver. Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor, said that the EPA had consulted with an expert in workplace violence because of several incidents in the building.
Those incidents included bathroom bandits using paper towels to clog toilets and an individual placing feces in the hallway outside the bathroom. The EPA was advised that the poop in the hallway at work was a risk to health and safety.
The behavior was categorized as highly dangerous. “Management is taking this situation very seriously, and will take the necessary actions to identify and prosecute these people,” Cantor wrote in the email.
