Nobody Goes to work to Die – Some health and safety basics
- * you have a right to join a trade union.
- * that trade union should organise to protect your health and safety.
- * you should not be sacked or penalised in anyway for raising safety concerns.
- * the trade union members you work beside will protect you more than the boss, if you work together on safety.
- * it is better to have a trade union safety rep as your first port of call than to try to rely on a safety specialist: a manager or consultant or so-called “expert”.
- * you will probably never see an official inspector .
- * if you do see an official inspector, sadly, it will probably be because someone has been killed or there has been a very dangerous incident.
- * for your protection, don’t do anything you think is dangerous that you are not trained to do – you have a right to information, instruction and training on all significant hazards.
- * if you think something is dangerous and could result in serious injury or death to you or someone else DON’T DO IT until you, and preferably a trained health and safety representative, are satisfied safe procedures have been put in place, risks have been brought under control.
