ATW: Health & Safety Rep Vacancy

12 April 2013

Notification of Vacant Health & Safety position within St Mary’s house, nomination period closes on 7 May 2013.


Vacant Reps position

We are writing to make members aware that the position of Health & Safety (H&S) representative within St Mary’s house is now vacant.

Jonathan Goode has decided to step down from this role so I would like to give him big thanks for his hard work and efforts as H&S rep in the past. I hope that you will also convey your appreciation to him direct.

What does it entail?

Being a Health & Safety representative both on and off the railways is a key role in ensuring that other members and colleagues are kept safe and that procedures are followed to ensure adequate measures are in place to reduce risk of injury or even fatality.

Whether the workplace has high or low health & Safety risks issues can arise as a result of lack of intervention over a long or short period of time and it is so important to have people in the workplace who are accredited by the trade union to carry out Workplace inspections, investigate accidents and be willing to educate and communicate positive messages to colleagues on how to keep themselves safe. Training will be provided by TSSA and paid release to attend this and carry out your duties will be granted by ATW.

If you are willing to stand for one of these positions then please complete the attached nomination form and get 6 other TSSA members to nominate you as well. The nomination forms will need to be sent to Alan Valentine by Tuesday 7 May 2013 and if more than one candidate stands for nomination for either vacancy then we will need to run elections following this date. If you have any queries or are interested in being more involved with TSSA then please contact Alan Valentine on 07775912829.
