    Safety FirstAccording to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) hospitals are one of the highest risk work environments (

    The following are a small sampling of the daily risks we face:

    ·         We work with high-risk chemicals, including cleaning solutions, radioactive materials, & medications.

    ·         We work in areas that may have poor lighting, ventilation, or inadequate space for the task at hand.

    ·         We perform risky activities on a daily basis such as manual lifting.

    ·         We work with the general public in times of crisis.

    ·         We work in areas of isolation and dense populations.

    Our employer has a duty and responsibility to provide a safe work environment. They must identify risks and provide the education and resources to keep you safe. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it is required by our contract.  

    Our Union Contract has specific language providing for your safety and right to raise safety issues, concerns, and problems without fear of retaliation. Our Union believes the right for safety extends beyond our facility walls and extends to our parking lots. If you see or suspect an unsafe situation call us for guidance.

    We want this to be the best and safest hospital, the one at which people want to work and do not want to leave.

    Through your Union contract you can make this a reality.

    Avance Informativo

    La seguridad primero: de acuerdo con la Administración de Salud y Seguridad Ocupacional (OSHA por sus siglas en inglés) los hospitales son uno de los medioambientes de más riesgo (

    Lo siguiente es una muestra pequeña de los riesgos cotidianos a los que nos enfrentamos:

    ·         Nosotros trabajamos con químicos de alto riesgo, incluyendo soluciones de limpieza, materiales radioactivos y medicamentos..

    ·         Nosotros trabajamos en áreas que tal vez tengan alumbrado y ventilación escasa o espacio inadecuado para la tarea presente..

    ·         Nosotros desempeñamos actividades arriesgadas a base diaria, tal como levantar manualmente.

    ·         Nosotros trabajamos con el público en general en tiempo de crisis.

    ·         Nosotros trabajamos en áreas de aislamiento y de población densa.  

    Nuestro empleador tiene la obligación y responsabilidad de proveer un medioambiente de trabajo seguro. Ellos tienen que identificar los riesgos y proveer la educación y recursos para mantenerlo seguro/a. No solamente es hacer lo correcto, sino que es requerido por nuestro contrato.  

    Nuestro Contrato Sindical tiene lenguaje específico que provee para nuestra seguridad y el derecho de sacar a la luz cuestiones, preocupaciones y problemas de seguridad. Nuestro Sindicato cree que el derecho de seguridad se extiende más allá de las paredes de nuestras instalaciones y que se extiende a nuestros estacionamientos. Si usted ve o sospecha de una situación insegura, llámenos para guía.  

    Nosotros queremos que este sea el mejor y más seguro hospital, en el que las personas quieran trabajar y que no se quieran ir.

    Mediate su contrato Sindical usted puede hacer ésto una realidad.

    A benefit of seniority: There are two types of seniority- hospital and department. Seniority is defined as the length of time an employee has been continuously employed. Do you know, the longer you are employed by the hospital determines how much vacation time you earn? The longer you are there, the more you earn. For your first year you earn 10 days of annual leave, prorated by your FTE.
