As a Prospect member you are entitled to free advice on health & safety matters. Our experts are here to help you bring claims for officers through the courts and employment tribunals where health and safety legislation has been breached.

Accidents and other work-related injury or illness cause considerable expense in terms of sickness absence, in addition to the distress and ill health suffered by union members. All too often these problems could have been prevented with minimal cost or effort had proper regard been given to issues of health and safety.

Expertise in Health and Safety Law

Changes to legislation in recent years have resulted in an extensive body of statute and regulations dealing with health and safety in the workplace which apply to union members. We believe in proactive involvement using existing Health and Safety legislation to its maximum effect.

We make sure risk assessments are carried out and safety representatives are aware of, and confident about, exercising their extensive powers in accident prevention. We analyse accident data to identify and highlight potential problem trends. Our team of Health and Safety specialists can assist with workplace audits, to ensure safety regulations are complied with.

Prospect terms apply to all legal services. For further information please visit the Prospect Guide to Legal Services on the Prospect website. Please note this is a member site only so you will need your membership number and password.
