Greater Manchester Hazards Centre (GMHC) is a not for profit organisation which campaigns lobbies and advises workers on occupational health, safety and welfare issues. GMHC works with trade unions in the workplace, at branches and at regional and national levels, produces fact sheets and information packs, sets up and supports health and safety campaigns, raises awareness, co-ordinates a network of health and safety representatives in the North West and is supported by a panel of industrial, legal and academic experts.
This service is FREE to all workers – trade union members, safety reps, workers in non-union workplaces, homeworkers, young workers, and the families of workers killed at work – and to community groups facing hazards in the Greater Manchester area, and campaigns locally for better workplace health and safety.
Greater Manchester Hazards Centre is part of a national network of Hazards Centres and other health and safety groups, the Hazards Campaign, which campaigns nationally for safer workplaces. GMHC runs the secretariat for the Hazards Campaign, organises the annual Hazards Conference and resources and promotes International Workers Memorial Day on 28 April every year.
