Safety Training & Educational Trust Fund

About the Fund

The Indiana Teamsters Safety Training & Educational Trust Fund is a Taft-Hartley non-profit fund administered by a joint union-management board of trustees. The present source of funding is exclusively employer contributions negotiated in each employers collective bargaining agreement. The Fund is presently servicing all Teamsters Local Unions in the State of Indiana.

It is the purpose of the Fund to provide quality safety education, which in turn develops better communication between employers and their employees, in safety related matters. Our experience with companies that we are working with indicated much progress has been accomplished in the areas of increased productivity, worker cooperation, employer commitment and reduced worker injuries.

Results have shown less lost work time and reduced workers compensation premiums. All of these work to enhance the employers economic condition to make them more competitive in today’s market place. A well trained worker is safe, dependable, and has a true sense of pride in their profession. Our Safety Training Program can help to accomplish this goal.

SAFETY TRAINING & EDUCATIONAL TRUST FUND

With the expanding membership and Employer participation in the Safety Training & Educational Programs we would like to make the following list available to each of you. Since many of our Employers do work in locations throughout the State of Indiana we believe that the telephone numbers and address listed below may be of interest to those of you who travel to different areas.

The Staff at Safety Training encourage you to give us a call anytime you are in another Local’s jurisdictional area. If you have any questions concerning the Safety Training Programs that might be of interest to you or your co-workers please feel free to advise us and perhaps we can field a class that is beneficial to the membership.

Remember your Safety Training & Educational Trust Fund was established to encourage safe work habits, promote safety on the job, and to further the education and training to our membership in crafts which are utilized by those Employers who are participants of the Fund.
