Report a Health and Safety concernIf you are worried about something at work which you feel might be health and safety-related, we want to know. You need to raise awareness of it. Such things might include:
- Dangerous work being carried out
- Someone acting in an unsafe manner, particularly something which could cause harm
- Dangerous equipment being used
- A near miss
How to raise a concernIn the first instance, you need to raise this as soon as possible with your immediate supervisor/ team leader/ manager - whichever is appropriate. If you do not feel comfortable reporting it this way, talk to a 'grandparent' manager (someone further up the line management chain).
If you prefer, you can talk to a Health and Safety Advisor.
If you would rather take the issue outside of your immediate management, talk to your local staff health and safety representative.
