The Pennsylvania State Building & Construction Trades Council and its
affiliated members support and provide training to their members in
order to provide the best and safest trained workforce.
Safety training helps the worker identify possible hazards and prevent
on-the-job accidents. By providing the best safety training, Contractors
and Unions strive to insure that workers are able to earn a living and
return home each day uninjured.
Many of the Building Trades Local Unions have adopted and incorporated
the OSHA 10 hour Safety Training Course or the Building and Construction
Trades Departments "Smart Mark Safety Training" modeled after the OSHA
10 hour training into their Collective Bargaining Agreements and
Apprenticeship Training Programs. A workforce that has been provided the
proper safety training focuses on the prevention of accidents. Safety
training also helps the contractors keep their Experience Modification
Rates (EMR) low, thus enabling them to competitively bid on projects
that would otherwise keep them off a bid list, plus reducing their
workers compensation premiums.
