Health & safety is union business
There are many things that can affect the health of workers, including hazardous manual handling, noisy machinery, long working hours, irregular shifts, cold / hot environments, sufficient training, chemical exposure or bullying and harassment.
The NUW aims to have elected and trained OHS reps at all our sites so they can represent members on any OHS matter. It is also important for OHS reps to be kept up to date on changes and developments to OHS laws.
We welcome OHS related contributions to this site from our OHS Reps and members - please contact your site delegate or organiser if you would like to contribute a story, some information or a good link/resource for other NUW members to use..
