Tickets to attend the conference can be booked via Eventbrite

Spnsorship of the conference ensures that it can continues every year, and given the cutting back of resources available for Health & Safety within the TUC and wider Trade Union movement: Hazards Campaign is an essential for union safety reps and union activists concerned with workplace health and safety.

Their Hazards Magazine covers major issues and now as a result of the loss of TUC Risks, is the ONLY truly informative and authoritive magazine for Union Safety Reps in terms of its subject matter and ability to question what many commercial H&S institutions; do not. This includes political actions and laws which affect, often badly, the health and safety of workers and the wider commmunity. For example, the removal of the need for self employed to adhere to H&S legislation. This has reslted in greater risks to those who are self employed, the people they employ, and the wider public.
