If you have a health & safety problem
Your local safety representative at departmental, college or LA should be your first port of call for any health or safety query or problem. Elected by the union locally, they have the knowledge, are able to access training with paid leave, get paid facility time and have direct access to the union's officials and health and safety advice line. They are part of the local procedures agreed with your management, with statutory rights, to deal with health and safety.
We would like to be informed of any accidents which have had or may have had serious consequences. We're also interested in preventing accidents so would appreciate reports of anything you consider to be 'an accident waiting to happen'.
