The mission statement of the IAM/Boeing Health and Safety Institute is "To ensure continuous improvement of workplace health and safety for the IAM bargaining unit of employees of The Boeing Company and to create an environment characterized by open communication and mutual trust between workers and management on issues of health and safety."
The Health and Safety Institute helps the two parties solve problems, achieve goals, and, most of all, keep employees safe and productive. The Institute's efforts go beyond awareness; they enable and encourage employees to take action while on the job -- and at home -- to promote long and productive lives for themselves and their families. Whether the National Governing Board, the Administrative Staff, or a Site Committee, it's the same story: union and company working together for a healthier and safer workplace.
At the Institute, the idea of working together is more than just a slogan -- it's an everyday business practice that has contributed significantly to the successes of Institute programs.
