Health and Safety Committee
The workplace is too often dangerous to our health. Every year, deaths, injuries and chronic diseases take their toll. The Health and Safety Committee is focused on prevention and on maintaining the highest degree of physical and mental health.
Our conference call meetings can easily accommodate you – no matter where you live. Add your voice to the events and initiatives that we organize and develop expertise in Health and Safety.

- Educating, politicizing and mobilizing Health and Safety activists by making links between themselves, theunion, the workplace, andWorkers’ Safety and Compensation Boards
- Empowering, uniting and engaging all union members to take action for Occupational Health and Safety
