Welcome to Safety & Health!

The mission of the UFT’s Safety & Health Department is to protect all UFT members — whether teachers, school-related professionals, family child care providers or others — from the occupational hazards that can confront them. We do this by providing information about potential hazards, advocating on behalf of members to address unsafe conditions, and collaborating with appropriate city and state agencies to enforce health and safety standards.
