Last Friday, #BAC1MVD students were taught how to properly use a harness, along with other ways to prevent falls at work.

Falls are the leading cause of death in construction. Educating our members on how to combat this threat is a huge part of keeping #BAConTrack.


It's time for another #FlashBAC Friday! Today we're sharing a photo from March 3, 1973.

Help us identify the #bac1mvd members in this image! We would love to put names to the many cheerful faces in our archive. You can reply to this post or send us a message.

The second webinar, hosted by @imiweb, is taking place next Wednesday, May 12th, @ 1pm EDT!

This session's topic is "Lintels for Masonry Walls," presented by Cathleen Jacinto.
