Without proper training, precautions and prevention, the hazards and risks at the job sites are continuous threats to our workers’ daily lives.

Workers must protect themselves by understanding the risks and hazards at every workplace. Knowing the limits of approach and hierarchy of controls is essential, as it can be the first step in eliminating risks at a job site. At the same time, implementing preventative measures such as wearing PPE while coordinating with your spotter before the start of any project can mitigate any safety hazards while performing your tasks.

IUOE Local 793 stands as a dedicated advocate for the protection of all workers involved in building and maintaining Ontario. The importance of this mission cannot be overstated, emphasizing that safety is not a matter of chance – it’s a deliberate choice that each person must make.
