Training workshop: Refusal to work on the grounds of safety
Venue: Exmouth Arms, Star Cross Street, near Euston
All workers have the legal right to refuse to work in unsafe conditions. By using this right, we can protect ourselves and force employers to provide a safer workplace for us, our workmates and our passengers. With employers under increasing pressure to cut corners in order to save money, this issue is more important than ever.
The workshop will ensure that you understand your legal rights and how to use them.
This training workshop will look at:
- what the law says
- unsafe situations that arise in rail and transport
- occasions when rail and transport workers have asserted their right to refuse to work in unsafe conditions
- your company's procedure for refusal to work
- what you can do if you are faced with unsafe working conditions
And there will be useful materials for you to take away with you.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that you are coming.
This workshop is also running on the previous Thursday afternoon in east London - details here.
