2019 TUC Health and Safety Rep Award
The TUC wants to demonstrate and acknowledge the range of work currently undertaken by lay union representatives on behalf of their members and the community. They will be making an award to the trade unionist who represents the best aspects of being a health and safety representative. This is not intended to be a competitive award, and the TUC is keen to develop this award over the coming years. The award will be made at the 2019 Congress, which takes place in Brighton from 8-11 September.
The award is for lay members who have shown outstanding effectiveness in their role as a health and safety representative. Nominations will be judged against their contribution as a health and safety representative in their workplace and not any other roles.
In line with the practice for other TUC awards there will be one overall winner of the award, however, unions may submit as many nominations for this award as they wish, but each nomination must be signed by the union’s General Secretary. Please complete this form and submit it to the TUC by the deadline of Friday, 7th June 2019 (the address is at the end). Please complete the form in typescript or black ink so that it can be photocopied.
The judging panel will rely on the information given on the form so please make sure that enough detail is given for the judges to assess the entry. Supporting materials can also be attached.
Please obtain the consent of the person being nominated before submitting this form. The TUC’s decision about any aspect of this award is final.
The CWU Health, Safety & Environment Committee has always supported the award and as a union we are proud to have won the award on a number of occasions previously.
National Health, Safety & Environment Officer
