At LIUNA Training, our top priority is giving workers the information and practices they need to protect themselves, fellow workers and the public. LIUNA Trained means jobsite safety, a reduction of hazards, and a healthy return home at the end of the workday.
Safety is incorporated into all of our construction, environmental and leadership courses. In addition, our Safety and Health Training program targets a variety of industry and regulatory requirements: Lockout/Tagout, Respiratory Protection, Work Zone Safety and Process Safety Management.
The Safety and Health program is a must for all construction workers because job sites can be dangerous. Everyday hazards such as falls, electrical shock, or the risk of being struck by objects have led states and provinces to require safety related training. In the U.S. our Safety and Health program provides the OSHA Construction Industry Outreach training to every affiliated training center.
The Safety program also addresses the many hazards that are specific to a jobsite or task. Working at heights, in trenches and confined spaces, with toxic materials, in hot or cold environments, or with fire risks or explosives all require advanced knowledge of safety procedures and protective devices. The program also offers the safe use of tools and equipment to reduce the potential of injury while working around and operating machinery. In addition, the program covers personal protection to eliminate hearing or vision loss, prevent back injuries, and avoid heat stress.
The Safety and Health program includes both classroom hours and hands-on training. A general listing of our safety courses is available on the right side of this page. Also, our affiliates offer specific courses to meet area requirements. For information about what safety training is available in your area, find a training center in your area.
