For Members

Our mission is to promote and improve the safety and health of our members both on and off the job.  The New Jersey Laborers Health and Safety Fund offers a wide variety of programs, services and initiatives, all focused on keeping you, and your family, safe and healthy.  We work closely with your local union and district council, NJ Laborers training centers, and with contractors and fellow health and safety professionals to make sure you have the information and support you need.  

Here are some of the services and programs available to all members.

Health & Safety

What is the New Jersey Laborers' Health and Safety Fund? Construction is a dangerous business, one of the most dangerous. It's a challenge to keep people safe and healthy on and off the job, and no one can do it alone. That's why the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) and its signatory contractors founded the health and safety fund. Working together, the New Jersey Laborers' Health and Safety Fund (NJLHSF) helps save time, money, and most importantly, lives.

Training Schedule

Classes are organized by month and facility.  Saturday classes are listed seperately each month.  All classes begin at 8:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
