CSP health and safety briefings

Employment Relations & Union Services produces information and guidance on a wide range of health and safety issues:

iCSP Safety Reps Network

The safety reps' networks on iCSP are restricted to accredited CSP safety reps. Once you become an accredited safety rep you will automatically be put forward for approval on both the national network and your own regional network. If you are not currently registered on iCSP, please do so as soon as possible.

News and information relating to your role as a safety rep is published on the safety reps' networks and you will be sent updates of new content so you can be kept informed, even when time is at a premium. Specific news on issues relating to your region, including regional training days, is posted on a regular basis.

Trades Union Congress

The TUC website has a section on health and safety which includes dedicated guidance for safety reps.

File 220550You can also download a PDF copy of the Safety Representatives and Safety Committees Regulations 1977, (aka 'The Brown Book'), from their website.

Workplace health and safety standards

The Workplace health and safety standards is published by the Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group with the support of the Health and Safety Executive. This document aims to help organisations comply with health and safety law by pulling together legal requirements and good practice.

It includes revised chapters on health and safety management systems, lone working and an updated chapter on sharps injuries. (The latter reflects 'sharps instruments in healthcare' from the 2013 Health and Safety Regulations.) The standards are aimed at directors, managers with health and safety responsibilities, health and safety professionals and trade union safety representatives.
