Module 5 – Health, Safety & Stress At Work

This module has been designed following feedback from reps in regards to the increase in the members suffering from work related stress who require support from their reps. The  module looks at what reps can and can’t do when dealing with members suffering with Work  Related Stress. It provides a frame work for reps to work to and gives useful contacts of external agencies that may also be able to provide assistance.

The module also looks at what is required of a union health & safety rep, the benefits of having these in place and what tasks they should be doing and how often.
