Abstract
The distance between the parties in their view on the safety representative's role and position must be taken seriously, and could in itself be a threat to safety. In this case a close dialogue between the parties is needed. Mutual understanding and acceptance of the safety representative's contribution to safety performance are fundamental for mutual trust and constructive collaboration between the parties.
