Piedmont Survey Reveals Health and Safety Risks

Thank you to the nearly 500 Piedmont agents who completed the safety survey conducted by CWA in December 2019. The results are helping us approach management with concrete information to resolve health and safety issues that affect all of us.

Being understaffed is the number one safety concern because we are rushed to do our jobs, which raises the risk of missing safety steps.

—Sandy Wizzard, CLT

In the survey, Piedmont agents reported serious hazards on the job, including severe understaffing, poor equipment, and failures by management to address risks. We are determined to make sure that the company takes action to minimize these risks. We all deserve to feel safe on the job.
