About this resource

There is an interactive resource available for anyone who wants to consider how to make their workplace safer through building a strong union.

Health and safety reps

Union health and safety representatives make a difference in the workplace: those with union representatives and joint safety committees have half the major injury rate of those without. Health and safety is one of the main reasons that people join a trade union.

To support health and safety representatives, and anyone else who want to organise in their workplace take a look at the eNote on health and safety and organising. An eNote is a great resource to help representatives get a good grasp of an issue and this one is a self-contained module that contains a mixture of text, video and quizzes that you can work though. It lasts between 20 and 30 minutes and can be returned to as many times as you like. The different sections that can be used together, or individual ones may be of particular use to your needs and situation.
