← WHY UA / Setting Industry Standards
Accidents and injuries on the jobsite increase costs and lead to project disruptions and risks. In order for a project to be completed on time and on budget, safety must be a top priority.
The UA has always had a strong safety program. We believe every worker has a right to go home from the job in the same shape as when he or she arrived at the workplace. We also believe that a safe workplace is the most productive and profitable workplace.
The UA Standard for Safety policy compliments our OSHA safety training programs and ensures that both UA members and our signatory contractors make best safety practices an inherent part of the quality craftsmanship we provide.
Both policies represent a labor-management commitment to upholding the highest industry standards in the workplace and ensuring customer satisfaction by promoting UA members’ world-class skills and safe, efficient work practices.
