UNISON members believe health and safety is the most important issue at work. Health and safety can be a matter of life and death. Many of our members know what it’s like to experience stress, violence or accidents and injuries at work.
Health and safety reps work to make the workplace as safe as possible. They can:
- Make representations to the employer on behalf of members on any health, safety and welfare matter
- Represent members in consultation with Health and Safety Executive inspectors or other enforcing authorities
- Inspect designated workplace areas at least every three months
- Investigate any potential hazards, complaints by members and causes of accidents, dangerous occurrences and diseases
For more information on Health and Safety, please contact the branch Health and Safety Officer via the branch office.
