What is consultation?

Consultation needs to be a two-way exchange between employers and employees that involves:

  • sharing information about health and safety
  • giving employees a reasonable opportunity to express their views
  • taking those views into account. 

Employees can be consulted in a variety of ways, including by setting up a health and safety committee or by holding regular meetings.

If employees have elected a health and safety representative (HSR), the HSR must be involved in consultation.
