February 1, 2018

Memorandum

To: All Local Unions and Contractors

Re: Request for Project Safety Achievement Articles for Ironworker Magazine

From: Steve Rank, Executive Director of Safety and Health

Date: February 1, 2018

 

As part of the “2018 ZERO Incident” campaign commissioned by General President Dean, the Safety and Health Department would like to feature members and projects that have achieved outstanding safety performance. We want to formally recognize our Ironworkers and contractors in the August special safety edition of the Ironworker Magazine.  Many complex projects throughout the United States and Canada are completed by our members and contractor’s on-time, on-budget, with outstanding safety performance. However, in many cases these efforts remain unnoticed to project owners, regulatory agencies, insurance carriers, and others in the construction industry.   

 

I would appreciate your consideration to provide photographs and information for projects to be featured in the August special safety edition of the Ironworker Magazine.  The deadline for submitting jobsite photos and article information is May 30, 2018.

 

Submitting photographs and articles for special recognition:

 

  • Members and contractors in the United States: forward articles to Christie Rose, Safety and Health Department at CRose@iwintl.org and call her at (847) 795-1714 for assistance.
  • Members in Canada: forward articles to Jeff Norris, Canadian Safety Coordinator at JNorris@iwintl.org and call him at (780) 717-0071 for assistance.
  • Members with safety and diversity articles:  forward articles to Vicki O’Leary, General Organizer of Safety/Diversity at VOleary@iwintl.org and contact her at (202) 702-7828 for assistance.
  • The deadline for submitting jobsite photos and article information is May 30, 2018.

 

Specific information for articles and photograph requirements:

 

  • Photographs submitted must have at minimum 300 dpi resolution for clarity.
  • Provide the project name along with the city or town where the jobsite or shop is located.
  • Include the contractor name, Local Union member for each photograph submitted.
  • Describe the scope of work in progress and any special safety consideration that were addressed or commended by the project owner or general contractor.
  • The deadline for articles and photographs is May 30, 2018

 

An important part of The International Association’s “2018 ZERO Incident” campaign is the recognition of members and projects that demonstrate their skills and complete complex projects with outstanding safety performance.  We want to formally recognize our Ironworkers and contractors throughout North America in the August safety edition of the Ironworker Magazine.  We continue to challenge all members to “See Something - Say Something” to recognize and avoid workplace health hazards. 

 

Please contact me in the Safety and Health Department at (916) 752-2581, Jeff Norris, Canadian Safety Coordinator at (780) 459-4498, or Vicki O’Leary, General Organizer of Safety/Diversity at (202) 702-7828 if you have any questions pertaining to the submission of articles and photographs for the special safety edition of the Ironworker magazine in August of 2018.

 

Please forward all articles and photographs to Christie Rose with the Safety and Health Department at CRose@iwintl.org or call her at (847) 795-1714 for assistance.   We look forward to receiving photographs and project information from you!
