SBCTC Health and Safety Funding Approved for Fourth Year

September 22, 2014 - OSHA has approved funding of $175,500 for the fourth year of our State Building and Construction Trades Council (SBCTC) Health and Safety program. This means we will continue to support affiliates, apprenticeship programs and contractors by offering training and resources on a variety of safety and health issues impacting our workers, and expand our training repertoire in 2015.

Currently we offer Hazard Awareness seminars at no cost on these topics:
Focus Four Hazards – Falls, Electrocutions, Struck By, Caught Between
Sprains, Strains and Repetitive Motion Injuries
Fall Prevention and Rescue Planning
Toxics in Construction

In Spring 2015 we will add “Noise and Hearing Loss Prevention” to our training repertoire. We are also reviving and upgrading our popular HUSH (Hardhats United to Save Hearing) program from ten years ago with new and improved training. We will offer train-the-trainer and hazard awareness classes across the state.

This training is of great benefit to our unions and workers and is free. For more information about scheduling a seminar, contact Program Coordinator Laura Boatman at 916-443-3302, or at [email protected]. Additionally, there is much additional information and resources on these topics, in English and Spanish, available at our Safety and Health Hub. Please visit it at safety.sbctc.org.
