The training and support safety reps receive from their union mean that an experienced safety rep is in a good position to help you. Unions provide their safety reps with information, training and support over a wide range of health and safety issues. They are trained to spot hazards at work, assess risks, carry out inspections and negotiate improvements with management. Their back-up includes specialist advice from union safety experts, and access to legal advice if needed.
