Safety & Health

If you want to bid work on the North Slope, the Pipeline, or the Valdez Marine Terminal area, you must complete the NSTC Safety Orientation before you can be dispatched. Go to http://www.akteamsterstraining.com/ for the current class schedule.

We encourage all members to take personal responsibility for their safety on the job. Report safety problems to your Union and/or Company Safety Representative. If you are unable to resolve a safety problem or if you are instructed to work in an unsafe environment, contact your Shop Steward or Business Representative. Whenever possible, you should always try to resolve safety problems at the job site with your Supervisor or Company Safety Officer, but you should never allow a condition that puts you or other workers at risk to go unresolved.
