MOST provides over 14,000 safety boot vouchers

Board of trustees extends voucher expiration date to October 2007

Since beginning its program in January 2006, MOST has issued over 14,000 safety boot vouchers to Boilermaker members.

In August 2005, the MOST board of trustees voted to provide a $75 voucher towards the purchase of certain Red Wing steel-toed boots to any Boilermaker member who is current with their MOST drug screening and has participated within the last three years in MOST’s 10-Hour Construction Safety & Health Training Program. In February, the MOST trustees voted to change the qualifying criteria to any Boilermaker member who has attended MOST’s 10-Hour Construction Safety & Health Training Program and one other MOST safety training class.

Over 11,000 safety boot vouchers were issued to Boilermaker lodges in January; almost 3,000 more were issued in June. A third and final distribution was scheduled for October; those figures are not yet available.

MOST was established in 1989 as a joint labor-management trust fund by the National Association of Construction Boilermaker Employers (NACBE) and the Boilermakers union to provide Boilermaker manpower in areas of need, to maintain a highly-skilled work force, to maintain current skills and train new skills and technology, and to instruct and teach safe work habits, not only for Boilermakers, but for all who are involved on a project.
