One of the most important roles a trade union can play is to ensure the welfare, health and safety of its members. For nearly two hundred years this has been one of the 'added values' of trade union organisation. Independent academic evidence shows that trade union safety representatives can make the workplace twice as safe as those workplaces that don't recognise a union.

This toolkit discusses strategies and initiatives to identify and overcome ill-health issues at work.
