In this paper the results of a survey of activities and attitudes of approximately 100 health and safety representatives in the construction and telecommunications industries in Western Australia are presented. Information was obtained on: experience; numbers of workers represented; the type of health and safety issues arising; the amount of time spent on health and safety matters; and how this time was spent. Union assistance and information sources used by representatives were investigated. Attitudes to accident causation were explored and correlated with representatives' satisfaction with management, government departments and inspectors.
