Workers Memorial Day 2018 theme for the day is Unionised workplaces are safer workplaces and will focus the huge difference that unions make in preventing deaths in the workplace.

It is 40 years since the Safety Representatives and Safety Committees Regulations came into force.

They established the right of a recognised trade union to appoint safety representatives from among the employees it represented.

The regulations conferred number of powers to safety representatives including to investigate potential hazards and dangerous occurrences at the workplace (whether or not they are drawn to their attention by the employees they represent) and to examine the causes of accidents at the workplace."
