Health and Safety Reps standby

Back to all Motions

2018 Water, Environment & Transport Conference
23 February 2018

This conference notes the ever-increasing need for safety improvements in the WET sector.

Yorkshire Water Branch would like the sector to adopt the approach being taking at Kelda where we have formed a health and safety representative’s standby rota.

It has been designed for union health and safety reps to get called out to investigate significant near misses, accidents and incidents anytime during a 24-hour period.

This conference calls upon the service group executive to:

1. Consult with Yorkshire Water branch to determine best practice.

2. Launch an action plan to assist branches to adopt similar arrangements where appropriate.
