The Trades Union Congress (TUC) provides high quality resources and training for trade union safety reps.

The legal rights of safety representatives can be found in the "Brown Book" which contains the regulations, code of practice and guidance on safety representatives. The TUC has produced a version of the "Brown Book" for training purposes.

To help safety representatives undertake their role, the TUC has made a considerable number of resources available.
