Each apprentice takes required courses in health and safety training in order to complete their apprenticeship.

Our apprentices learn these skills so they can keep themselves, and their fellow workers, safe on the job. It’s important for BAC Local 1 members to be safety-conscious on the job so they can go home to their families.
