Safety

Safe: The Only Way We Work


West Michigan Plumbers, Fitters and Service Trades Local Union #174 is committed to protecting the health and safety of our members. Both members and apprentices are taught the most stringent safety standards in the classroom and able to rely on what they have learned while working on the job site.


All members who report to work will have an OSHA 10 Hour, CPR and Bloodborne Pathogens certifications.


Safety is more than just classes or certifications, it is a behavior. We incorporate safety into every semester of our five year apprenticeship program.


Safety also comes with experience. We are the most experienced plumbing and mechanical professionals in West Michigan. Our safety training started in 1891 and continues every day.
