IronworkerUnionized workers make up the safest workforce in the building and construction industry. A union-trained workforce lowers costs, reduces accidents and increases productivity, all factors that make for good business.

Union Safety Training through OSHA results in the opportunity for contractors to actually save money since trained workers are better able to avoid costly accidents that can cause work stoppages, employee shortages and workers’ compensation claims.

Unionized workers can also feel more secure on a jobsite, both in terms of physical safety and job security, meaning there is typically a higher employee retention rate than on non-union projects.
