HEALTH AND SAFETY EXECUTIVE (HSE) POINT OF CONTACT
I can advise members that the HSE has provided an email address for unions to report concerns to directly:
This is to help reps raise issues, demonstrate to HSE the scale of the problems and encourage it to take urgent necessary action.
Also, the TUC has launched a report outlining some of the steps we need to ensure work is safe before any easing of ‘lockdown’ can be proposed. You can find the report here:
Although this is not for the rail industry members, be assured that I have raised this matter with Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Railways at the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) this morning and asked him to follow the example of HSE. If such a scheme is set up by ORR I will update this Circular.
Please make the contents of this Circular available to all appropriate members.
