Safety reps: unanimous support


Support for safety reps

A call from the HSE branch for Prospect to highlight the ‘union health and safety effect’ received unanimous support.

Condemning attacks on facility time, mover Richard Bishop said: “Everyone knows workplaces are safer thanks to union health and safety reps, who play a vital role.” Fearing that caps on safety reps could compromise this, he urged the NEC to warn of the potential consequences.

Ben Pye (EFRA) added his support, urging safety reps to assert their rights in the face of the Cabinet Office watching closely.
