We believe elected health and safety representatives make a very significant difference in helping to achieve better health and safety outcomes in workplaces, particularly in those workplaces where managers and supervisors are also trained.

This is because health and safety representatives provide employees with a pathway to have their views and concerns about health and safety heard by the employer.

The series wasn’t what I was expecting, but it definitely delivered what I needed. Brian did not bring his agenda along at all, all the twists and changes came from me, but he made it possible.
