The Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council Safety Department represents over 300 counties in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and parts of Iowa.

Recently, we merged with the UBC council that represented many hard working members from the Missouri and Kansas areas. We welcome the highly trained and safe members and look forward to sharing safety knowledge with each other. Membership safety means enhanced marketability to employers and working an entire career free of injury and illness. Safety for an employer means lower costs, superior worker productivity and an improved bottom line. By working together union carpenters and their employers meet their common goals.


Education and knowledge are the keys to success!

Our Safety Training program offers members a variety of hands-on classes and certifications. Classes are conducted at the Carpenter Training Center. Skill Enhancement and Safety and Health classes are updated every six months.
