This year the National Insulation Association (NIA) held their 60th Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas and honored participating member companies for their outstanding safety performance in the mechanical insulation industry in 2014. Created in 2004, the Theodore H. Brodie Distinguished Safety Award was named in honor of past president Ted Brodie. The awards program serves to nationally “recognize top companies that have established structure safety programs to ensure the well-being of their employees and create safe working environments.”
We would like to recognize and congratulate WICA members who received the 2014 Theodore H. Brodie Distinguished Safety Award and thank them for their commitment to safety in the workplace.

WICA-WSC Labor/Management Conference Held in March PDF Print E-mail

The leaders of the Western Insulation Contractors Association and the Western States Conference Business Managers met last week in Palm Springs for the annual Spring Labor-Management Conference. The agenda included a number of topics and a great deal of time was dedicated to understanding how labor and management can work together to help increase market share and work opportunities. There was also considerable discussion on the minimum level of certifications that craftsman should hold in order to be eligible for work. Certifications such as: OSHA 10, Refinery Safety Overview (RSO), Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC), Lift Training, Abatement Certification, Fall Protection, First Aid/CPR, Scaffold Training, Mine Safety & Health Administration (MSHA), were just a few of the items discussed.

It was noted that an increasing number of projects were requiring drug testing and background checks and when employees fail to check out, it gives both labor and management a black eye with Construction Users. It was noted that “Fit For Duty” Testing was just around the corner and that one refinery had already put its contractors on notice that it would be a condition of employment as early as this fall. Obviously, this will be a significant issue that labor and management will have to work together on in order to meet owner requirements.

Additional discussion topics included the Jurisdictional Dispute between the Sheet Metal Workers International Union and the Asbestos Workers International Union, L/M participation in Energy and Insulation Industry Awareness Trade Shows, Manpower Portability, Foreman Training, and more. Finally, an overview of the present and future work load was given for each of the Western States. It was noted that man-hours for the entire WSC had held level during the economic downturn and that while current projections don’t show a significant increase in man-hours the long term work projections look optimistic and that both L/M would need to work diligently to develop the future workforce.
