Make a nomination for the Health & Safety Rep of the Year

At Congress this year, there will be an award for a Health & Safety Rep of the Year (and a Runner up) named after Mary MacArthur who helped to end the barbaric practice of ‘sweating’ workers and campaigned to improve safety standards for women working with explosives in World War One.

We are looking for branch nominations for reps who have made a real difference to workplace safety, often in the face of opposition from employers.

Please circulate this through your reps and GMB contact groups. Nominations can be made by any GMB member, and previous nominees (not winners however) are eligible to be put forward. Nominations are particularly encouraged from female reps, BME reps and young member reps.

Nominations can only be done online by filling in the form found on the link below which should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Details will also be on the GMB London Region website. Please submit nominations by Friday 22nd April 2022.

If you are unable to enter details online, please contact Regional Office and we will assist.

The National Health Safety & Environment Department will receive nominations and will keep Regions informed throughout the process. There will be a presentation at Congress for a winner and runner- up but we will ensure that all commended nominations in our Region are considered for a Regional award by our Regional Committee.
