Although casualties have been reduced in recent years, falls remain the number one cause of workplace fatalities in construction.   Falls from roofs, scaffolds, ladders, and through uncovered floor openings still threaten our members’ lives each day.  We want fatalities to drop to zero, and we believe effective training of unions, employers and workers is a critical component to achieving this goal.

Our train-the-trainer classes are renowned for bringing together multi-craft, joint labor/management audiences to share practical information and create a network of trainers who can enhance existing training with a new curriculum geared toward workers.

With funding by a grant from federal OSHA, we can offer you the rare chance to get this training and curriculum at NO COST.  Instructions on how to apply are included on the flyer and application form.  Don’t hesitate; class sizes are limited and registration is first come/first served.
