St. Helens Construction Apprenticeship Program

Fall Protection Equipment for a High School Construction Apprenticeship Program

In 2019, the SafeBuild Alliance Foundation awarded a grant to St. Helens High School to provide their construction apprenticeship program with the fall protection equipment. This gear was used by students as they worked to tear off and re-roof a house remodel project. The grant was awarded at the tournament lunch last year, and before lunch was over, ACME offered the fall protection products at a steep discount and provided the required training free of charge. As word of the project and donation spread, Brand/Safeway donated a scaffolding system, greatly increasing the safety of the students and their projects.
