Many members can face problems on their journey to and from work.
Women in particular can feel more vulnerable when travelling in the dark late at night and early in the morning. Usdaw research found women are twice as likely to feel unsafe on their way to work than men.
Usdaw Reps are taking action to address the concerns raised by our members. The Safe Journey campaign gives practical advice on how to make staff journeys safer.
Campaign materials can be ordered and include posters, leaflets, surveys and guidance on how to assess the risks your colleagues face and tips on what your employer can do to overcome them.
