Change In Health and Safety Responsibities

Back to all Motions

Police Service Group Conference 2003
19 February 2003

Conference notes that section 95 of the Police Reform Act has moved the overall responsibilities for Health and Safety from Chief Constables to

Police Authorities. This issue will have a major impact on all Police Authorities in England and Wales. It is not clear how this change in arrangements should be dealt with from a UNISON perspective.

Conference therefore instructs the Service Group Executive to develop and send guidance on how Branches should tackle this issue with Police Authorities.
