You get it on your two day induction. You're lucky if they have your size; the pants are miles long and tops are very baggy. You tend to get the number of shirts and trousers for how many days a week you work (up to five of each). Your boots, fleece, jumper, name badge, FOB, lanyard, locker/key and ID badge are also provided.
