Safety Is Our Highest Priority on Every Project

We develop safety partnerships with contractors and owners to protect the health and safety of our UBC Pile Drivers and Divers — and to safeguard owners’ investments. Our goal is to remove jobsite injuries, prevent work stoppages due to unsafe conditions and eliminate higher project costs due to illnesses, accidents and deaths, worker disabilities and workers’ compensation claims.

Through continuous training, the UBC instills a core value of safe work within everyone, from apprentices to superintendents. We live up to our standards through a commitment to proactive leadership, dedication to creating a safety-conscious environment and the determination to achieve zero-accident jobsites.

Dedication to Safety by UBC Contractors

Our employers’ primary goal is to complete a project with no incidents or injuries. A UBC Contractor delivers safe jobsite practices by:

  • Including a health-and-safety management system and safety performance history in bid documents.
  • Providing a crew of UBC Pile Drivers with proven track records in safe work.
  • Verifying safety qualifications and training of employees.
  • Conducting a safety-orientation meeting with all employees prior to the job’s launch.
  • Communicating with project managers and owners regarding hazards and safety risks.
  • Demanding and maintaining a drug-free workforce.
  • Implementing a safety risk-assessment and mitigation program.
  • Completing safety audits with truthful and comprehensive information.
  • Eradicating hazardous or unsafe conditions or practices quickly and efficiently.

Our Difference Is Our Training

UBC Pile Drivers are trained to work and support an injury- and accident-free jobsite through attentiveness and continuous improvement in safety measures. Safety training starts on the first day of apprenticeship – and we reinforce safety throughout every UBC Pile Driver and Diver's career.

The UBC Difference

UBC Pile Drivers acquire the skills, knowledge and preparation to work safe by focusing on:

  • Responsibility to others.
  • Understanding the contractor’s and owner’s safety expectations and potential unsafe factors on each job.
  • Safe performance and task completion, as well as safe behavior in and around active work areas.
  • Maintaining up-to-date safety, human performance, first-aid and OSHA qualifications.
  • Effective communication with co-workers and supervisors during all tasks.

The Bottom Line

Safety and productivity is not an “either or” proposition. Performing work safely is in the DNA of UBC Pile Drivers. Safety-conscious contractors know that safety issues are minimized, without hindering productivity, when UBC Pile Drivers are on the job. The stakes reach far beyond the fiscal benefits for both labor and management.

It was comforting to see the amount of knowledge the apprentice members already possessed along with the eagerness to master the skills. These efforts greatly assist contractors with creating efficient bid opportunities within the jurisdiction."
