Contractor Deaths on Water Sites

Back to all Motions

2004 Water & Environment Service Group Conference
27 February 2004

This Water and Environment Conference is very concerned about the decline in safety standards on sites such as those managed by United Utilities whereby three sub-contractors (including one aged 17) have died since Autumn 2003″.

We call upon UNISON’s lay and paid officials on the (National) Water and Environment Service Group Executive with responsibility for Branches with members in the Water and Environment Service Group to urgently seek talks with Water UK to jointly strive to establish an acceptable code of safety practice and conduct on sites where contractors/sub-contractors work.
