Shaping change

Shaping change

Prospect can get involved with organisational change.     

Proactive

  • Find out whether your employer has a change management policy? If not ask for one to be developed and put in place.
  • H&S reps can use their rights to being consulted under Regulation 4A of the SRSC Regs1977. If you're a H&S rep, know your rights and use them. You can find more on change and H&S law  or about fulfilling your role in the H&S Rep toolkit.
  • Ensure your employer brings primary preventive measures to stress management and uses the stress competency framework in line management training. This should ensure a stress risk assessment approach is used and understood. See our stress page for more.

Gather evidence:
