40th Anniversary of trade union safety representatives

TUC safety reps at 40 campaign

On 25 October 2018, the Trades Union Congress is launching a campaign to mark the 40th anniversary of trade union health and safety representatives receiving the legal right, under The Safety Representatives and Safety Committees Regulations 1977, to improve health and safety in the workplace.

HSE places great importance on worker involvement and consultation, which has proved to be a key factor to improving health and safety in the workplace. To mark the anniversary, a series of case studies produced by safety representatives, HSE Inspectors and others will be available over the next six months on our Worker Involvement webpages. We invite you to view these and the material that can be found on the TUC website and reflect on the valuable work undertaken by safety representatives and safety committees over the last 40 years.
