Our "Safety Month" is a Year-Long Focus

Although June is designated as National Safety Month, the carpenters, millwrights and pile drivers of the UBC Southern District make safety a priority every day of the year.

Union carpenters are known for their attention to safety on a job site, and that’s because we invest in our members by giving them relevant, real-life safety training throughout their entire career. UBC Southern District journeymen and apprentices all understand that safe work means:
  • personal accountability–especially when no one is watching
  • responsibility to others
  • understanding the owner’s safety expectations of the project
  • identifying and calling attention to unique hazardous or unsafe factors
  • safe performance
  • safe behavior in and around the hot work areas
  • safe task completion
  • maintaining current safety, human performance, first-aid, and OSHA qualifications
  • effective communication with co-workers and supervisors during dangerous tasks

Our safe work product is our edge. It plays a big role in keeping our members employed and our employers in demand.

Are you trained and ready to go with your safety certifications?  Contact your local training center and take a class if your credentials are up for renewal.  Here’s the link to find the center nearest to you: http://ubcsoutherndistrict.com/Training.xml
