Membership in SEAA provides Safety, Education, and Productivity benefits for its members. As a trade association representing Steel Erectors, Fabricators, General Contractors, and Vendors, businesses with complementary interests gain invaluable opportunities to Network with each other.
Here are five reasons why SEAA membership is so valuable.
Stay Informed: Monthly e-newsletters, special reports, and multiple educational events provide members with access to the latest industry news, labor and regulatory trends, and insurance and risk management tools. Many members are involved on standards boards, with government initiatives, and in other industry associations, providing insider information to what’s happening in the industry.
Impact Decision Makers: SEAA has formed strategic partnerships with other professional groups, associations, and government agencies. To name just a few, SEAA works with American Institute of Steel Construction, Steel Joist Institute, Steel Deck Institute, National Center for Construction Education and Research, and National Institute of Steel Detailing to leverage a greater knowledge base and to provide its members with broader resources. Historically, the SEAA has worked closely with OSHA to influence legislation to benefit steel erectors, crane operators, and others in the construction industry.
Sharpen Skills: Workshops, symposiums, and webinars provide multiple opportunities for members to learn new ideas to apply to their businesses. Each year, the annual convention features the best speakers from around the industry to explore the latest practices, trends, equipment, research, and policy affecting the steel erection industry.
Improve Safety: Training and educational materials are designed specifically for the steel erection industry. Products like OSHA Steel Erection Compliance Training Modules for Connectors or Fall Hazard Training are affordable solutions for in-house training courses. Many of the top safety experts in the industry are active members of the association and willingly share their expertise.
Shape the Future: The average age of skilled crafts people is 57 and new workers are not entering the market. SEAA with NCCER is working to promote the steel erection industry to young people, to provide training for ironworkers, and to facilitate job placement.
