Upcoming Plans

This Alliance is complimentary to the SMACNA-KC Chapter Partnership. The SMACNA Partnership provides the “management commitment” and the Sheet Metal Workers Union Local #2 Alliance provides the “employee involvement” elements necessary to change the culture of this industry, in accordance with the elements of an effective safety and health management system as set forth in the “1989 Voluntary Guidelines for and Effective Safety and Health Management System”. This dynamic interaction of the Alliance with the Partnership should serve as a model for future cooperative efforts within an industry.

Future plans are to continue to support the Sheet Metal Worker Local #2 with its efforts to provide enhanced OSHA 10- and/or 30-hour safety and health training to their Apprentices, as part of the Union Apprenticeship program. Additionally, we plan to provide training sessions on specific needs to their Journeyman level Union members.
