Health and safety brown book
TUC Brown Book - GMB YorkshireGMB is recognised as the leading British trade union on health, safety and environmental issues. GMB has a distinctive approach to dealing with health and safety matters. We support around 20, workplace safety representatives. Indeed, we believe that the people who are most likely to understand the risks associated with a particular job are those who actually do the work. The starting point for the GMB approach to reducing accidents and ill health caused by work is to identify what can cause harm. This could be noise, asbestos, lifting heavy boxes, dangerous machinery etc.

The most effective tool that we have in ensuring good health and safety at work is trade unions, because organised workplaces are safer workplaces. Evidence shows that workplaces with union safety reps and joint union-management safety committees have major injury rates less than half of those without. Unions make a difference. We reduce injuries, improve ill-health and help change the safety culture within an organisation. At the core of this are safety representatives. The legal rights of safety Representatives can be found in the "Brown Book" which is the regulations, code of practice and guidance on safety representatives. To help safety representatives undertake their role there are a considerable number of resources available from the TUC.
