Welcome to the IAMAW Canadian Health & Safety Web Page!
Every union representative, whether a Steward, a President or a Business Representative, shares a common intrinsic interest in their membership working and labouring in the safest environment possible. Additionally, those of us who hold positions on Joint workplace union/management health and safety committees hold an additional responsibility that is fostered in legislation.
This page is intended to assist all those with the task of developing and sustaining a safe working environment for our membership by publishing breaking news on health and safety events and issues; networking representatives to valuable web sites such as legislative, research and interest groups; publishing timely periodicals, Canadian Labour Congress National Health & Safety Committee initiatives, educational opportunities and much more.
There will also be the opportunity for you, the membership, to contribute your experience and knowledge for the benefit of all.
In addition to the general practices legislated by law, Safety and Health is an environment that is subject to a great variety of industry-specific criteria. In addition, legislation differs according to Provincial and Federal Codes. It is my ambition to design these pages in a manner that will assist all safety activists in sorting through specifics that concern their particular needs.
As we progress through this mandate, I encourage you all to provide me with your thoughts and concerns so that I am better able to design this resource to better assist us in developing the safest possible working environment for all.
