Make Your Voice Heard in the IAM Workplace Violence Survey!

You still have time to make your voice heard in IAM CREST’s second annual workplace violence survey. The survey is available in English, French, and Spanish.

The survey will close on March 31, 2019. Results will be published in April 2019.

The survey will help IAM CREST work toward solutions to improve workplace safety. The survey is completely anonymous and data will be shared with other partners to develop broad strategies.

Help us make work safer by taking the IAM CREST Workplace Violence Survey.

The survey is also available in French and Spanish.

You can also text IAMSAFETY to 55-000 to complete the survey on your mobile device. Workplace violence can take the form of a physical or emotional attack. 

Nearly 17,000 workers experienced trauma from nonfatal workplace violence in 2016, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Five-hundred Americans were victims of workplace homicide victims in 2016. 

Click here to see results of IAM CREST’s first workplace violence survey.

Questions or concerns about the survey can be directed to IAM CREST Project Coordinator/Instructor Michael Oathout at 301-967-4707 or moathout@iamaw.org.

Remembrance Day 2018

On Sunday, November 11th, we pause to remember those who fought and sacrificed for our freedoms.

Armistice Day, now known as Remembrance Day, was first marked in Canada on Nov. 11, 1919. That date marked the one-year anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the First World War. This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the end of the war.

If you’re able to attend, the Nova Scotia/Nunavut Provincial Command of the Royal Canadian Legion will be holding a Remembrance Day service at Halifax Grand Parade, starting at 10:30 a.m.
