How many representatives?

There is no “right” number of elected health and safety representatives, as it will depend on your business. You need to think about:

Larger employers may have several groups or constituencies each requiring a representative. Smaller employers may have fewer representatives or one for the whole workforce. If you are not sure how many representatives you should have, ask your employees what they think or request views from your working group.
