Welcome to the QUB Safety Representatives Website

Safety Representatives are persons appointed by recognised trade unions to carry out functions as laid down by law (i.e. the Safety Representatives and Safety Committees Regulations (Northern Ireland) Second Edition 1997). Training is provided by a 10-day course organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions. In addition some unions supplement this training with their own courses. The major unions at Queen's have appointed Safety Representatives who are entitled to sit on their Local/Departmental Safety Committees.

The Queen's University Safety Representatives Committee is a Joint Trade Union Safety Representative body that oversees Health and Safety issues at Queen's and has been in existence since 1979. The Committee is a very active body and has ensured that safety issues are given a high priority within the University. The following unions are currently represented on the committee, Unite, UCU and NIPSA. The Committee normally meets once per term and has regular meetings with the Chair of the University Safety Committee. The Annual General Meeting of the Safety Reps. Committee determines the Officers and the trade union representation on the Health & Safety Consultative Committee and other committees.
