Transportation Safety

Transportation SafetyIt is the goal of the IAM Safety and Health Department to provide our members and representatives in the transportation sector with up-to-date information. We believe all workers are entitled to easy access to transportation safety information. Without access to the latest information, workers and their families and the public could be at risk to injury and chemical exposure. Making this information available on our web page is just one way the IAM 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 Try the links, if they change or are no longer active, please notify the Safety and Health Department at (301) 967-4704 or e-mail to 

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