What kind of information can a safety representative get from an inspector?

Any employee, including the safety representative, can obtain two kinds of information from Health and Safety Authority inspectors:

▲ factual information to do with safety and health in that particular place of work, except any information revealing a trade secret

information about any action the inspector has taken or proposes to take in connection with the place (e.g. whenever the inspector serves an Improvement Direction, Improvement Notice or Prohibition Notice, he or she must provide a copy to the safety representative and in turn inform the representative whenever any of these enforcement actions are withdrawn)

The inspector must also give this information to the employer at the same time.
