Workplace Safety

It's Everyone's Responsibility!

You have the power to stay safe.


Our Focus On Safety

One of the top priorities that Local 537 has as a union is looking out for your health and safety. If you work in an unsafe condition or manner, you are much more likely to be injured on the job. All the benefits in the world don’t matter to an employee that cannot work or enjoy them. Local 537 officers work closely with employers to address any concerns over health and safety that our members have. Local 537 System Officers are currently working with Pennsylvania-American Water Company to address the escalating soft tissue incidents that are occurring. We believe that they can be prevented, and we are committed to partner with any employer that wishes to take the lead in creating a safer and healthier work environment for our members.

Your Focus On Safety

You, as an employee and union member, are the one most responsible for your safety while at work. No one can make you work in an environment that is unsafe. If you believe a condition poses a hazard to your health and/or safety, you should immediately take action to address your concerns. Many things can contribute to an unsafe working condition, and your surroundings and environment can change rapidly. You need to be aware of changing conditions and how they affect your work area.
