RCN UK Safety Representatives Committee
The committee provides a network for the feedback of information to local learning representatives and boards, and advises on the development of RCN policy on workplace health and safety issues. It also provides a means for boards and local representatives to feed up their concerns and priorities to the Trade Union Governance Group and MRC. Members of the committee are elected to their boards by stewards in their country or region.
