UNISON Scotland has been working with the STUC and Sniffer – the charity which delivers the Adaptation Scotland programme for the Scottish Government – to develop the new resources. Many thanks to all who have contributed, including the trade unionists taking part in last year’s webinars and agreeing to be interviewed and those on the advisory group. Your input was crucial and is really appreciated.
The new handbook and workbook, and resources from last year’s webinars, are online on the Adaptation Scotland website at www.adaptationscotland.org.uk/how-adapt/tools-and-resources/climate-risks-workplace-protecting-workers-changing-climate
Whether we work indoors, outdoors, offshore or travel for a living, all workers are increasingly vulnerable to disruption, damage, and potential injury from climate change impacts such as windstorms, flooding, and heatwaves. Come to the launch and find out how to make your workplace more resilient.
These resources are likely to be of wide use and interest to all trade unionists, but are particularly relevant for branch officials, health and safety reps, green/environment reps, union learning reps and more.
The workbook and handbook pdfs are also available on these links.
