The 2019 IAM Joint Air Transport Safety Committee Conference was held at the William Winpisinger Education Center in Hollywood, Maryland. IAM safety advocates from District 140, District 141 and District 142 were joined by management safety officials from companies where workers are represented by our union. Conference attendees participated in group discussions and hands-on seminars where they shared ways to improve safety policies and procedures, how to mitigate workplace hazards and how to promote a comprehensive safety culture. They also enjoyed a presentation by professional race car driver Andy Pilgrim, founder of the Traffic Safety Education Foundation, who is passionate about promoting safety and combating distracted driving.
District Lodge 141 will feature highlights from the JATSC Conference, including Pilgrim’s presentation, at the upcoming District Safety Conference in October. More information and video presentations coming soon.
