Tackling Health and Safety from the Inside

Back to all Motions

2017 Water, Environment & Transport Conference
24 February 2017

This conference notes the ever increasing need for safety improvements in the WET sector and especially in the light of the ever decreasing enforcement from HSE and government cuts.

Yorkshire Water Branch would like the sector to adopt the approach being taking at Kelda where we have two Health and safety reps seconded into the company health and safety team ie tackling safety issues from the inside.

This conference calls upon the service group executive to:

1 Consult with YW branch to determine best practice

2 Draw up a charter based on the principles in 1

3 Launch an action plan to assist branches in adopting similar principles
