Safety and Health

ICE has been representing the unionized masonry contractor in Safety & Health matters from its inception.  ICE’s officers and staff have worked with the BAC and other industry Safety and Health Committees.  ICE works with the Construction Industry Safety Coalition (CISC) to advocate for legislation, rules and standards that benefit union masonry contractors while protecting their workers.

On behalf of union masonry contractors, ICE:

  • Monitors industry trends for potential safety implications that may effect the businesses of ICE members;

  • Works with the International Union of Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers to jointly address industry safety issues in a manner that protects workers while maintaining the competitiveness of unionized employers;

  • Monitors the legislative environment for laws and regulations that will effect safety and health practices in the unionized masonry industry and proactively seeks to influence legislation, standards and processes; 

  • Keeps ICE members up to date on all OSHA requirements and fosters better safety environments for contractors and their employees; 

  • Identifies, prioritizes, develops, evaluates and supports the implementation and use of appropriate tools, models and Best Practices to address critical safety and health issues.
