SAFETY OFFICER CORNER Safety
A.F.G.E. Local 2142
Safety is as you have heard before, for the benefit of all employees. We all practice it for our own safety and the safety of others. “Be Good At It”
UP DATE: In the past year we have received approximately 170 PINERS, many requiring action/follow from the Union Office as well as CCAD Safety. Some of the PINERS were categorized as near misses with lessons learned. Others were personal injuries/illness and property damage from accidents, fires, etc.
There were two complaints filed with OSHA and those issues are addressed/mitigated. There is ongoing work by CCAD to permanently resolve the issues. We are following the progress of the solutions.
VPP – Voluntary Protection Plan
Members interested in participating in safety are asked to contact Robert Bean (AFGE Safety Officer) by email or call the Union Office (961-7000/961-2142). We need volunteers across the depot to attend meetings, training and perform safety audits in the shops.
Let us as AFGE Members in the New Year focus on our safety at work and at home.
