Ironworkers Negotiated Workers' Compensation Program
Safety Standards and Performance
In an effort to increase safety performance and prevent job site injuries, the Ironworkers Workers' Compensation Trust Fund created a safety program policy for contractors who elect to participate in this collectively bargained workers compensation program. Before contractors are allowed to participate in this program, they must pass a complete safety audit that includes unannounced job site safety inspections and a review of safety and programs.
During the course of participation, contractors are required to comply with any applicable federal, state, or local statutes pertaining to employer safety requirements. Routine job site safety inspections will be conducted to evaluate contractor safety performance. In the event of non-compliance with the Program Safety Policy, the Ironworkers Workers' Compensation Trustees reserve the right to seek any remedy necessary to rectify substandard safety performance.
