Health and safety

The CSP believes health and safety in the workplace is an issue for everyone.

Every year, thousands of people suffer accidents and ill-health at work - most of which could be avoided. Unions and health and safety laws save and protect lives. But many more could be protected from harm if health and safety laws were better enforced.

We are working with other unions, the TUC and like-minded organisations for a new way of working that guarantees every worker a safe and healthy workplace.

If you have suffered an injury and/or have concerns that your working environment is bad for your health, contact your local CSP safety rep.
