An email from bosses has been sent to around 6,000 workers forbidding them from playing the popular mobile game, with security and safety fears cited as the reason behind the ban.
It is understood the email was sent after a worker played the game while on site.
Last month the Bristol Post reported employees at the Airbus site in Filton were 'bemused' as dozens of Pokémon fans started flocking to the high security site to play Pokémon Go.
A spokesman for Airbus was reported to have said at the time: “It’s a serious point – working factories are not places where people should be distracted by playing games.
“They can be hazardous places if not treated with respect.”
He added: “Unauthorised photography has never been permitted at Airbus sites, for reasons of commercial confidentiality primarily.
“This applies for across the board and not just for this particular game.”
VW and Boeing have already banned employees from playing the monster-catching game.
