NYC Union Local No. 3 IBEW and the Joint Industry Board of the Electrical Industry (JIBEI) Strive for Health & Safety Excellence in their Membership

“Teamwork is an essential part of workplace health and safety; that teamwork can be found in the collaboration between the association of Local 3 IBEW contractors and workers. It can also be found in the rapport between a member contractor, their workers and their client. It has been a privilege for United Alliance Services’ team of credentialed OSHA instructors to be able to make a contribution to the successful formula in improving safety in the workplace for all involved.” Valerie Wakefield, President/CEO.


For the past four years United Alliance Services has partnered with the JIBEI Educational and Cultural Trust (E&CT) to provide a series of health and safety course and assist their membership in meeting OSHA, EPA, ANSI and NYC DOB compliance requirements. These courses have been specifically developed to not only meet compliance but to go beyond as each course has been customized to meet the specific needs for the electrical industry. Each course also incorporates industry best practices and specific requirements that may need to be met within construction contracts or by clients and/or NYC agencies such as the NYC DOB, NYC DEP or utility providers.

“Effective workplace safety can only be achieved when everyone involved takes responsibility; once they do, it is easier for everyone to work together as a team and watch out for each other. This is clearly demonstrated in member contractors and the union work force at IBEW Local Union 3. They clearly stand together in their dedication to workplace health and safety compliance training.”  Marc Bianco, VP of Technical Services.
