RISE Up affiliates
Our affiliates are trained in the RISE Up system to ensure they are knowledgeable about both the construction industry and the diversity, equity, and inclusion topics necessary to be effective trainers.
RISE Up Affiliates provide tools to employers that support maintaining and growing a strong, diverse workforce to meet the demands for skilled workers through training, job site awareness campaigns and contractor resources.
As the workforce in the construction industry becomes more diverse, companies are challenged to create working environments that foster safety, cooperation and trust between all workers, making employees more productive in the process.
The solution is customizable, best-practice based training to support employers in reducing and eliminating incidents that jeopardize employee safety due to inappropriate behavior on the work site. RISE Up supports workers and managers in identifying, addressing and reducing incidents that jeopardize employee safety.
