The TUC has reconvened its Women’s Health and Safety Working Group. The Group is focussing on a gender-sensitive approach to occupational health and safety and ensuring equal rights to protection for all workers. A Network has been set up so that safety reps can post

  • details of recent research on GOSH
  • information about what is happening in the UK, Europe and other countries
  • requests for information on particular topics
  • experience of dealing with gender and health and safety issues
  • debates about the best way to develop a gender sensitive approach.
