B&B Industrial Services staffs our worksites with a structured approached that maximizes quality, consistency and safety while insuring that the job is staffed with the most experienced supervision and craft personnel available.
Maximize Use of the Local Labor Force
B&B Industrial Services is committed to contributing to the well-being of the local communities where we work. Utilizing qualified local bricklayers and laborers is part of the commitment. Our employment records enable us to research a database of former employees in the local area to contact qualified employees from the local work force. Along with the help of local unions, we are able to mix our experienced traveling personnel to staff the project and help train new employees for future work in the area. On the average, 50 to 60% of BBIS's workforce is employed from the local communities.
The local unions provide the basic training of our tradesmen. In addition, we consistently provide the individual on-site training for the apprentice bricklayers and laborers supplied to us by the local unions. On the site, we will train the apprentice the actual use of the hand tools and field engineering required to support their trade.
Apprenticeships for bricklayers and laborers are sponsored by local contractors or by local union-management committees. The bricklayer apprenticeship program requires 3 years of on-the-job training, in addition to a minimum 144 hours of classroom instruction each year in subjects such as blueprint reading and drawing, mathematics, layout work, welding and sketching. The laborer apprenticeship requires 1 year of on the job-site training and OSHA safety training.
Bricklayer Apprentices often start by working with laborers, carrying materials, mixing mortar, and building scaffolds. This period generally lasts about six months and familiarizes the apprentice with job routines and materials. Next, they learn to lay, align, and join brick. Apprentices also learn to work with firebrick, castable, and anchor welding, which enables them to be certified to work with more than one masonry material.
Applicants for apprenticeships must be at least 17 years old and in good physical condition. A high school education is preferable; and courses in mathematics, mechanical drawing, and shop are helpful. The International Unions and the contractors who employ its members, operates training centers in several large cities that help jobseekers develop the skills needed to successfully complete the formal apprenticeship program.
