Working in Partnership

We work in partnership with our union colleagues at all levels within the organisation to ensure our health, safety and wellbeing controls are appropriate and work effectively. We encourage staff to consider becoming Union Health and Safety Representatives to ensure this is meaningful to everyone.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) recognises the value of communication with employees, through their Health and Safety representatives. The NHSBT by promoting a health and safety culture will support and help achieve the objectives of reducing accidents and ill-health for all colleagues. The role of the Health and Safety representative is to work in partnership and engage with management in a meaningful dialogue to promote a good safety culture. Their role and the duties of the employer are laid down in law and in guidance produced by the Health and Safety Executive. The NHSBT arrangements are to consult effectively with health and safety representatives as described in Health Safety and Wellbeing Consultation (MPD355).
