Independent research shows that effective H&S reps can reduce work accidents by up to 50%. This positive impact is known as the union effect and only works when there are enough members willing to become H&S representatives.
What does a H&S rep do?
H&S reps are volunteers committed to making a difference to health and safety at work by:
- fostering positive health and safety practices in the workplace
- recognising and bringing to management's attention any dangers at work and then helping to tackle them
- promoting the health and safety interests of colleagues and ensuring that, where someone is made ill or injured, effective arrangements for their return to work and rehabilitation are in place.
