Setting a new standard for the industry starts by developing the most talented and responsible workers from day one. Maintaining the skills of UWG members and enabling them to do their very best work on the job is our top priority. Not only does this mean better results for our clients, it means better opportunities for our workers.
We train every member with a core group of training principles: skill, safety, productivity, and attitude. UWG works with over 40 training centres across Canada and has the ongoing support and resources of the Carpenters International Training Centre.

This course is meant as a COVID-19 best practices guide and resource for members only. It does not provide legal advice, nor can it be solely relied upon to prevent the spread or transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19 on any specific job site, or prevent safety violations.
Contractors should regularly evaluate their health and safety procedures, as well as the specific hazards at their job sites, consistent with their Provincial authorities and the Public Health Agency of Canada recommendations to determine the appropriate job hazard analysis and safety procedures for the project / task as it relates to the spread and / or transmission of COVID-19. All contractors should incorporate COVID-19 transmission and prevention into all job hazard analyzes (JHAs) and pre-task safety planning for all aspects of the work. In addition, all projects should require social distancing, hand washing on a regular basis, and no large group meetings.
