The Finishing First LMCI and the International Finishing Trades Institute is here alongside the IUPAT and our contractor and industry partners to continue providing support and assistance during this crisis.
Although our mission remains the same, the tactics that we employ to accomplish that mission evolve, over time, as the industry changes. During this COVID-19 crisis we have made some very quick changes, in order to continue to support IUPAT members and our employers.
Watch a webinar on the virus and its impact on our members and workplaces HERE.
Working in the building and construction trades is a challenging career. There are high productivity demands on the workforce to meet deadlines, as well as working conditions that can often be an extreme danger if strict safety guidelines aren’t followed.
Yet, there are other risks construction workers face in the industry – suicide and substance use disorder.
