Your health and safety is a priority for your Local Union. We make sure employers are held to the Occupational Health & Safety Act and that every member goes to work in the safest environment possible. But ensuring you stay healthy entails much more.

Just like workplace safety, prevention is the key to overall good health. The `Your Health` publication is a series created to help you and your family stay healthy. Many of the health problems we experience can be prevented or at least mitigated by making better choices in our day-to-day lives.

Nutrition, health screenings, exercise – there are many ways you can take care of yourself to ensure you and your family live a long and healthy life. Prevention means we have to be proactive.

Have annual checkups with your doctor, get your teeth cleaned on a regular basis and go to the optometrist. We seem to have trouble fitting these kinds of things into our busy lives but these regular visits can help catch diseases in their early stages – when many are treatable.
