Training

Construction employees are pretested before hire to be assigned a certain craft. Once hired they receive an eight-hour class per OSHA requirements. Then the employee is sent to Safety Council for more specific training required by customers. All Carpenters, Leadmen and Foremen are trained through the Scaffold Training Institute as a competent person.
