Health and Safety
Everyone has the right to work in a healthy, safe environment. It is a well-established fact that unionised workplaces with active safety reps are safer workplaces. These pages provide access to a range of health and safety information which should be of use to Unite safety reps.
What to do if you have a health & safety problem at work
Unite has around 10,000 safety reps who are supported by branches, regions and Unite national health & safety staff. Unite Safety reps deal with issues locally, supported by their senior workplace reps. If you have a health & safety question and cannot find the answer in the Unite health & safety guide, or from our health & safety resources, please contact your workplace safety rep or your regional office for advice.
The Unite national H&S service is delivered by Bud Hudspith and Rob Miguel.
Anyone seeking advice must be a Unite member, and quote their Unite membership number.
