Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union



Info and Fact Sheets

Below we have provided a range of resources about Health and Safety at work, and tips for avoiding Hazards.  Much of this information is also in our annual health and safety booklet -- which is distributed to all H&S Reps on the union data base.

For further information contact your AMWU Delegate, Organiser or health and safety contact person. 

For information about any of these fact sheets or to order copies, contact us at or ring the HelpDesk on 1300 732 698:
