2023 RMT Award for Health and Safety Rep

This award acknowledges the tremendous work undertaken by RMT safety representatives in keeping RMT members safe.  

We will be making an award to the RMT safety representative who represents the best aspects of being a health and safety representative. 

The criteria for the award are that safety reps must: 

• have been outstandingly effective in their role as a health and safety rep in making things better for RMT members

• have been an effective campaigner, more than basic safety rep work 

• have made a difference by their campaigning 

Please note the deadline for award nominations is 31st December 2022

Branches may make more than one nomination, but there will be only one overall winner of the award.  Nominations will be made by branches and nomination forms must be signed by the branch secretary.
