TUC Health & Safety Reps Survey 2022

TUC Health & Safety Reps Survey 2022:

The TUC has launched the 2022 survey of union health and safety representatives, which the TUC carries out every two years.

This is the fourteenth biennial TUC survey of health and safety reps. It is designed to provide the TUC and individual unions with information about who health and safety reps are, and what their experiences and needs are.

This information is needed so that the TUC and unions can do more to help safety reps, and so that trade union safety reps’ views and experiences are better reflected in public policy debates and the work of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The responses are valuable to the TUC and indicate the issues safety reps are dealing with, and what work the TUC and affiliated member unions like the CWU should prioritise and campaign on in the years ahead.

The TUC will publish the results, and use them to campaign for better health and safety standards at work (including more rights for health and safety reps).

Safety rep responses are crucial to ensuring that this survey provides the information the TUC is seeking. Please answer as many questions as you can – but if they seem irrelevant to your experiences, ignore them.

This survey covers the last two years (from December 2020 to December 2022). Please answer as many questions as possible. The survey is looking at your health and safety work in general over the whole period and includes survey questions specifically about your experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic. Responses will help shape the future health and safety priorities of the TUC and refine how the TUC and affiliated unions support safety reps in future.

This survey is now on-line as it has been for the last few years and will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Your contribution is incredibly valuable, and it can only be used if you reach the end of the survey and press the submit button.  All responses are anonymised in the final report write-up.

Survey Respondents will have the chance to be added into a prize draw which you can opt in to and the end of the survey.

  • 1stPrize – £200 supermarket voucher
  • 2ndPrize – £100 supermarket voucher
  • 3rdPrize – £50 supermarket voucher
  • 4thPrize – A year’s subscription to Hazards Magazine (all other winners will also receive this)

Collating the responses to this survey will be a time-consuming and expensive task, so the TUC cannot enter into correspondence arising from the survey. However, the TUC does want to know about any successes health and safety reps have had in improving health and safety standards and there is a section in the survey for safety reps to provide details if they wish.

The 2022 biennial TUC Survey of Health and Safety Representatives is now online so please complete the survey at:

Please complete the survey by Thursday 2 February 2023 when the survey will close.

Yours sincerely

National Health, Safety & Environment Officer
