H&S Briefing

NEU members in the Northern Region were treated to a twilight ‘health and safety’ taster session at the Centre for Life in Newcastle last week.  A brief introduction to the role of the NEU Health and Safety Rep looked at tackling workload and causes of stress in the workplace.  Excessive workload and working hours are continually cited by teachers as one of the main causes of their workplace stress.  The members attending the session were treated to their tea and cake, which, along with the thought provoking materials, went down very well amongst the group, many of whom have since signed up to take part in the NEU National H&S Training programme.

If you would like information on becoming a workplace H&S Rep, or on the NEU campaign to tackle workload stress, please contact the NEU on northern@neu.org.uk
