Consult - Involve the representative

An investigation involving the health and safety representative can give employees more confidence to co-operate. They may feel more comfortable speaking to a co-worker who can relate to them so they will say what they really think.

Representatives can play a very useful role here in communicating effectively with you and your employees.
