COVID-19 Preparedness Qualification Class
10/22/2020

When you hire Union labor, you know that safety is our #1 priority. Our members are expertly trained to be safety-conscious on every job site that they visit. This year, safety on the job site is more important than ever - which is why we are offering a new COVID-19 Preparedness Qualification course to ensure workers stay safe and healthy.

The first of its kind in the construction industry, this online course is designed to educate our members on how to protect themselves and their fellow workers to stop the spread of COVID-19. This program familiarizes our members with the OSHA guidance document "Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19" and recommended job site protocols. 

To date, close to 600 members have taken this course and we expect this number to rise substantially in the coming months. Upon passing the test, the COVID-19 Preparedness Qualification will display on the member's Training Verification Card. 

We are proud of the efforts made by the UBC's Carpenters International Training Fund to develop a course that helps our members, contractors and job site owners navigate safe practices during these unprecedented times. For all of your rigging, welding, installation, maintenance and fabrication needs, the Millwrights have you covered. Read more about Millwright capabilities here.
