Employers must recognise that work-related stress is a major health and safety risk and they have a duty to manage and eliminate the risk as they have with any other hazard

Being diagnosed with cancer is a traumatic and emotional event in a person’s life. It can cause fear and worry and can affect every aspect of a person’s life, including their working life. Cancer and its treatment will be a challenge, and each person will have a different experience.

The ninth annual NIPSA Health and Safety Conference will take place on Tuesday 23 October 2018 in the Wellington Park Hotel, Belfast from 9.30am to 4.00pm.

A major issue for NIPSA is Health and Safety of our members and all workers. The NIPSA Health and Safety Committee are elected each year to work on all matters relating to this vital issue. 

NIPSA Health and Safety Committee

Membership of the Committee comprises of:

  • 16 ordinary members,

  • 1 member from the General Council,

  • 1 member from the Civil Service Group Executive Committee and

  • 1 member from the Public Officer’s Group Executive Committee.

An EU Exit must not be used as a pretext to dismantle hard won rights and protections including Health and Safety Standards

This was the clear message from delegates at the 8th Annual NIPSA Health and Safety Conference on 24 October 2017 in the Wellington Park Hotel, Belfast. The theme of this year’s Conference was “The Impact of an EU Exit on Health and Safety”.
