Chemical Safety and HAZMAT

Chemical Safety and HazmatIt is the goal of the IAM&AW and the IAM Safety and Health Department to provide members, representatives and all workers with accurate up-to-date information. We believe all workers are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace. Without access to the latest information, workers and their families could be at risk to injury and chemical exposure. Making this information available on our web page is just one way the IAMAW is working toward this goal. More information may be available through your District or Local Lodge representative.
