East Midlands - Health & Safety

Please see below links to some useful Health & Safety resources which will assist you in your role as a Unite Rep.  Not only does the Region have its own dedicated Health & Safety Committee, but the Health & Safety Conference has just taken place on 27 October 2016..  The H&S Conference page below contains resources that were used at the Conference and also includes the H&S Bulletins produced by the Committee. 

It can be surprising how many substances we work with in the course of our daily job can actually cause long term damage.  The link below on Hazardous Substances is very useful.  For more general information and all other Unite Health & Safety Resources, click on Health & Safety.

In other news, Unite has launched its Lead Exposure Register.  A similar format to the Asbestos Register, this is for anyone who has worked with or working with lead.  For more information on this and the long term health issues caused by lead, please click here.  

There are courses available all the time for Health & Safety Reps which can be accessed via the link below.  There are also extra materials you can access by creating an account on our sister site 'Learn with Unite'.


You may have accessed our Legal Services Website already, however you will find even more information that will assist you in your role.  There are also success stories by Sector, where our members have used Unite Legal Services for a Personal Injury Claim.  Your Health & Safety is vital, however we can assist in the event of any accident.  Members also get to keep 100% of their compensation.  See below:
