The results of a survey of 125 Queensland workers undergoing health and safety representative training are presented. Part 1 contains information on: background and experience; time spent on health and safety, and health and safety activities; sources of health and safe information; support and involvement of fellow workers; recent health and safety issues and their resolution, and satisfaction with management's response to issues; contact with government departments/inspectors; assistance received from unions; and factors influencing effectiveness as health and safety representatives. Results are compared with those obtained from previous surveys in other States. Part 2, to be published in the next issue, reports on beliefs about accident causation and examines various groups, for example, shop stewards and blue collar workers.
