‘ If you want to be heard, speak in UNISON ’
Addressing UNISON’s LGBT conference in Brighton this afternoon, Christina McAnea, the union’s assistant general secretary with responsibility for bargaining and equality, spoke about how she increasingly hears the question asked of ‘why should I join a union?’ “Looking around the hall, some of you – not all of you – will be old enough to remember the UNISON TV advert that saw one cartoon ant trying to gain the attention of a bear.” It only hears and leaps out of the way when the single ant returns with a huge group of ants. The message was simple, she told them. “If you...

New Limits Threaten EPA ’s Asbestos Review
After pushback from the chemical industry, President Donald Trump’s administration is scaling back a congressionally mandated review of asbestos and other deadly chemicals. Toxic minerals in widespread use will be excluded from the revamped Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), which last December included asbestos among the top 10 dangerous chemicals the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must review. Reducing the scope of the review will potentially leave millions of tons of asbestos and other toxic substances in homes and businesses. The Trump administration reportedly wants to limit risk evaluations of the top ...

FDA ’s role in medical device cybersecurity
By: Suzanne Schwartz, M.D., M.B.A. Virtually every aspect of our lives – including our health – has gone digital.

This week (23 – 29 October) is health and safety week and the theme is ‘healthy workplaces for all ages’. In the UK, we have laws around health and safety to be proud of – laws that save the lives of working people. But with an unacceptable number of people dying from work-related disease or accidents, we also have a long way to go. The history of health and safety in the UK is a mixed bag – it’s full of successful trade union wins for better regulation, marked by terrible disasters that caused the needless death of workers.
