Training & Safety
The Local 493 Training & Safety Department is a division of the Local through which we hope to establish better standards of workplace safety, behavior, and technical knowledge. The department will develop a catalog of training videos and materials that will be available to all members. We encourage you to take part in these programs as they will make you and everyone around you safer, on and off set.

Monthly Short Video
During each of our monthly meetings we will be showing a short safety video (5 - 15 mins). These videos will cover a wide range of different subjects. As we always encourage all of our members to attend these meetings, we understand that sometimes life gets in the way. So following the meeting we will post the latest video on this page as well as previous videos.
