Safety Training

ASE Safety Training Reimbursement for Local #1 Employers

This program is designed to assist employers with the costs of providing safety training for their employees by providing reimbursement of tuition expenses. A training incentive is also available to help offset the other costs associated with sending Local #1 Ironworkers to safety training. This is not intended to cover safety orientation; toolbox talks or other site safety meetings.

Tuition Reimbursement

Local #1 employers can be reimbursed for 100% of the tuition paid for employees attending safety training classes (such as 10-Hour and 30-Hour OSHA curses and for other safety trainings required under OSHA, including CPR, Fall Protection, Confined Spaces and Scaffolding). Training must be provided by a recognized safety training provider. Advance approval is required.

Training Incentive

In addition to 100% Tuition Reimbursement described above, a special incentive will be paid to employers for training completed by Local #1 Ironworkers in their employ. The incentive will be paid to the employer at the rate of $75 for each hour of class time multiplied by the number of Local #1 employees completing the classes, up to a maximum of $10,000 per employer per calendar year.

Procedures & Requirements

  • The employer must be signatory to the Ironworkers Local #1 labor agreement and as such, an active contributor to the Associated Steel Erectors (ASE) Industry Promotional Fund that has reported a minimum of 1,800 hours in the prior year.
  • The employer must select the course to be given and decides which employees will participate. Any OSHA recognized training program is eligible.
  • At least 15 days before the start of the training, the employer must complete and submit the Pre-Approval Request Form to the ASE Industry Promotional Fund, and include a listing the class, the number of employees who will participate and anticipated tuition expenses. The Tuition Reimbursement Program is open to both management and craft labor employees. If the employer chooses to setup a private class, only the cost of the speaker will be covered; all other expenses will be the responsibility of the employer. Notice of acceptance will be issued within one week after the employer files the Pre-Approval Request.
  • The Training Incentive only applies to Local #1 Ironworkers. A maximum of $10,000 may be paid per employer per calendar year.
  • The employer will submit a Request for Payment Form to the ASE Industry Promotional Fund within 60 days after completion of the class. The employer must include the names of participating employees and proof of tuition payment (such as a cancelled check or credit card receipt). Proof of course completion must also be submitted.
  • A reimbursement check will be mailed promptly to the employer.

This program is sponsored by the ASE Industry Promotional Fund and is effective January 1, 2020. The Board of Trustees shall have the right to establish and amend the rules and regulations relating to the administration of the Safety Training Reimbursement Program at its discretion.
