Local Union #174 recognizes the importance of jobsite safety. Our members have been making safety a priority for generations. We know how important a safe project is to our contractors and our customers. All members who report to work will have an OSHA 10 Hour, CPR and Blood Borne 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. Our members have such a diverse training and work back ground that they are comfortable working in a variety of environments. We are also comfortable working with all piping systems and are familiar with the proper way to start, operate, drain and service these systems. Safety 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.
