The Hazards Conference is the UK’s largest educational and organising event for trade union safety reps and activists. Join them on Saturday 31 st July to Sunday 1 st August 2021 to fight for the fundamental right to safe and healthy work.
Safety reps make a huge difference in supporting and extending workers’ basic rights and conditions. The conference will look at innovative and practical solutions to many of the issues facing workers and provide opportunities to network, exchange experience and information and learn from safety reps and activists from other unions, sectors and jobs across the UK.
There will be sessions running on the Saturday and the Sunday including workshops on risk assessments, air pollution in the workplace, sex and gender health and safety, investigating incidents and injuries and much more. It is encouraged where possible to sign up for both days.
