SIPTU is committed to the highest possible standards of safety, health and welfare of its members at work. In order to assist in achieving this goal SIPTU has its own specialist health and safety service.

The health and safety service - based in SIPTU College - provides organisation and development support to help make workplaces safer and healthier. It has built up a valuable store of reference information on safety and health, which is used regularly for the benefit of Union members.

Activities include inspections and visits to individual workplaces and enterprises which are organised through SIPTU Sectors to give support to safety representatives and other Union representatives.
