The most effective tool that we have in ensuring good health and safety at work is trade unions, because organised workplaces are safer workplaces. Evidence shows that workplaces with union safety reps and joint union-management safety committees have major injury rates less than half of those without. Unions make a difference. We reduce injuries, improve ill-health and help change the safety culture within an organisation. At the core of this are safety representatives. The legal rights of safety Representatives can be found in the "Brown Book" which is the regulations, code of practice and guidance on safety representatives. To help safety representatives undertake their role there are a considerable number of resources available from the TUC.
