Safety and Health Research Links

It 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.

Please note that addresses on the internet change frequently. Try the indexes, if they change or are no longer active, please notify the IAMAW Safety and Health Department at (301) 967-4704 or e-mail to sfowee@iamaw.org

The following are web sites relating to Occupational Safety and Health. The IAM&AW Safety and Health Department has found these to be helpful in research. These may also assist you in obtaining and providing valuable information to members in workplace safety.
