Role of H&S advisers

Role is to advise management and employees or their representatives. Their advice needs to be authoritative and independent. To be effective they need to have status and competence.

Advisers need to
* Be well trained
* Stay up to date with laws and practices
* Interpret laws to apply to their organisation
* Be involved in developments and decision making
* Establish and maintain procedures
* Present advise well

H&S advisers are likely to be involved in liaising with outside bodies.
