CWAers Undergo Health and Safety Training

CWA members working for AT&T across Indiana met at CWA Local 4900 for a “Union Approach to Health and Safety” training last week. The training was co-facilitated by CWA District 4 Safety Trainer and Local 4900 Area Vice President Jason Creager and District 4 Staff Representative and Health and Safety Coordinator Ron Gay. With multiple states attacking worker safety, especially regarding heat-related injury and death, the training focused on Hazard Mapping, the Hierarchy of Controls, and other relevant topics in the day-long class.

The participants included AT&T Installation, Repair, and Construction technicians, as well as a Facilities Specialist. Gay described the class, saying, “The class was participant-driven, so there was a lot of discussion from participants as opposed to simply a lecture. People were engaged and shared their experiences with the room so that we could all learn from on-the-job incidents.” He continued, saying, “The participants were excited to take this knowledge back to their workplaces to share with their coworkers and build better safety programs in their areas.”

You can find information about this type of training and more at the CWA Health and Safety website.
