National standards for work-related mental health issues

Year: 2018

Nominating section: Northern Ireland

Policy text:

Conference recognises the stressful circumstances that FBU Members can be exposed to at work and the detrimental impact to their mental health such exposure can have.

Conference also notes that there is no national standard relating to how UK Fire and Rescue Services should respond to work-related mental health issues.

Conference therefore instructs the Executive Council to lobby employers to secure national standards to deal with Members who suffer with work-related mental health issues.
