Health and safety at work
The NUJ knows that health and safety matters and is about keeping you safe at work. Remember, your work can endanger your health, and even your life.
The NUJ has been at the forefront of the campaigns to prevent repetitive strain injury (RSI), bullying, stress, working in conflict zones and in tackling the health and safety issues arising from the introduction of new technologies.
To help achieve this the web pages below aim to help anyone working in the media to investigate or resolve an issue at their workplace, or for those just looking for further information on an occupational health and safety issue.
The advice here is often just common sense, though you may be surprised at the extent of legislation intended to protect your health.
