Health and Safety are some of the first lessons we learn as children. It is something that continues to have the same level of importance the rest of our lives.

This section of Local 3303’s website will strive to keep you up to date with current health practices and serve as a reference source for your health and safety needs.

Please contact your Safety Coordinator and/or our Safety Chairman, Jim Fletcher with any safety questions or concerns.

If you see any condition, behavior, practice or method of working in your department which looks dangerous, report it to your supervisor immediately.  Also consult your supervisor about the proper procedure if you have any questions about your work.
