The role of the Rep

We ask our CIRAS Reps to:

  • Act as the single point of contact for CIRAS reports
  • Facilitate good quality responses to reports
  • Promote the scheme to staff
  • Complete a quarterly scorecard
  • Distribute and encourage completion of an annual CIRAS staff survey
  • Cascade relevant information to your staff – e.g. newsletter, periodic reports


As guidance, we recommend that your CIRAS rep:

  • Has a health and safety role / experience / qualification
  • Is fully supported by the organisation in terms of their role as CIRAS rep
  • Has endorsement and support from their line manager
  • Is given adequate time to be able to fulfil their role


We ask our members to:

  • Integrate CIRAS into your safety processes
  • Proactively promote CIRAS
  • Make CIRAS available to all staff
  • Produce good quality responses to CIRAS reports within the given time frames
  • Implement promised changes
  • Pay the annual agreed subscription rate on time
  • Embrace the spirit of confidentiality, focusing on the issue not the individual
  • Appoint and support a nominated CIRAS representative


CIRAS will:

  • Process reports efficiently and effectively
  • Help you prevent incidents
  • Share good practice
  • Help you realise all the benefits of being a member of the scheme
  • Be professional, collaborative and personal
  • Respond to feedback
