Safety Incentive Information

Safety Incentive 2019

 

Some important information for September 1, 2018- August 31, 2019, Safety Incentive:

  • The plan now requires all Journeyman (not Apprentices) 8 hours of skills upgrade training per year. Examples of the upgrade training are scaffolding, fall protection, using a forklift, working with silica, and AED. 

  • The Plan now also specifically allows the OSHA 30-Hour class to meet the requirement of the 10-Hour OSHA class.  

  • Participants in the Incentive cannot receive wages during training hours. 

  • Your employer may put on safety training, but they must be a qualified program.

 

Our training program has made changes to our Safety Training Schedule to fulfill the new Safety Incentive requirements.  4-Hour Signal Person, 1st Aid CPR and AED, Trenching & Excavation, and Forklift Safety are considered a Journeyman upgrade training. If you do not do the Journeyman upgrade training you will not get your Safety Incentive Bonus. 

Application and card are due October 31st, 2019. All training needed to be completed by August 31st, 2019.
