“I am pleased to announce that Schuff Steel has 100% ironworker participation in all of Region IX. [The substance abuse] program serves as a selling point for us when discussing a ‘Drug Free Workforce’ with general contractors. We hope our fellow ironworkers realize how crucial this program is in helping to provide a safe place to work.”
Paul Benson Regional Field Safety Manager Schuff Steel Company Phoenix, AZ
First developed in 2005, the IMPACT Substance Abuse Program is currently under revision and will transition to a new revised Program over the next several months.
The goal of the IMPACT Program is to ensure ironworkers are drug-free and ready to work, and to make IMPACT member contractors more competitive in our industry.
