Health and safety

Everyone has the right to a safe workplace. Every employer has a duty not to make us ill as a result of going to work. 

Trade unions have worked hard to deliver the comprehensive health and safety legislation that the UK workforce enjoys, but governments and employers still try to undermine that. 

The best way to ensure that workers are protected is to have a strong, well organised union and a network of union health and safety reps in every workplace. Workplaces that have union safety reps and joint safety committees have half the serious injury rate of those without.
