The role of safety rep

Most of us are aware that working in a poor work environment can be detrimental to health and performance. However, a poor work environment should not be viewed as a condition of employment. ATL members can change these conditions; as a health and safety rep, you can make your own workplace a better, safer and healthier place to work.

The rights of safety reps

ATL's safety representatives are elected by their colleagues to represent them in health and safety matters.
