Health, Safety and Welfare

Health, Safety and Welfare

TSSA believes that everyone has the right to work in a safe environment that does not jeopardise their personal health, safety and welfare, either now or in the future. As a union we are committed to working to ensure that our members' workplace is a safe, comfortable, and welcoming environment.

Every worker has the right to be treated with dignity and respect in their workplace. We will not tolerate bullying, harassment, or discrimination in any shape or form.

TSSA is committed to taking on and challenging employers who fall short in providing such working conditions. Where our members suffer injury or ill-heath as a result of negligence, they have access to professional legal advice to help recover damages
