Further Education Safety & Health group (FESH)

FESH's terms of reference are: "To act as a forum for the further education sector, developing a partnership between employers and employee representatives and providing strategic oversight and direction on matters of occupational health and safety including that of the safe learner. It is expected that the establishment of this forum will lead to the evolution of practical solutions to occupational health and safety issues. The regulators will be invited to attend and others may be co-opted.”
