Health & Safety

You must be a Health & Safety Rep to undertake this course.  Contact 028 90270190 to find out how to become a Health & Safety Rep in your workplace

Being a Health & Safety Rep entitles you to paid time off for union duties.   All stewards are asked to complete Health & Safety training to enable you to support members in the workplace and to secure time off to do so.   This is particularly important for those in the private/voluntary sector.  This is a six day course which covers the legislation, risk assessments, workplace inspections, various areas of health & safety such as physical environment, equipment, lone working and work related stress.
