UNISON Scotland has issued a Covid-19 Safety leaflet for members in addressing safety issues during the pandemic. The leaflet can be accessed by clicking on the graphic on the right.

If you have any queries or concerns about your safety during this pandemic, please email

Workplace health and safety is central to the union’s pandemic response and this will intensify as we plan for a phased return to work while continuing to protect vital health, social care and other groups already engaged in the initial Covid19 response.

This short document informs members how to gather the information required to expose, question and, where necessary, challenge unsafe work. The leaflet connects members to an online safety checklist. Copies of the checklist data goes to the member via email and they can then relay that data to reps, branches or the region for advice as required.
