Health and safety

The NUJ knows that health and safety is central to keeping you safe at work. Remember, your work can endanger your health – and even your life.

The NUJ has been at the forefront of campaigns to prevent repetitive strain injury (RSI), bullying and stress and in tackling the health and safety issues arising from the introduction of new technologies. The NUJ also helps members working in public order situations, conflict zones and exiled journalists fleeing persecution in their home countries.
