Who We Are and How We Can Help

The Midwest Region Laborers’ Health and Safety Fund (MRLHSF) assists union members and signatory contractors in protecting their welfare on and off the job site by coordinating activities to increase worker productivity and decrease worker injuries at a safer, healthier workplace. By coordinating health fairs, job site safety audits, education seminars, and other activities, the Midwest Region Laborers' Health and Safety Fund promotes awareness of workplace safety and healthy living. The Fund also offers specialized training on issues of particular importance to the construction industry. In the tragic event that an accident does occur, the Fund provides critical incident stress debriefing and has established a scholarship for the children of Laborers killed or permanently disabled while on a job site.

MRLHSF was established to enhance job site safety and health and to improve the competitiveness of LIUNA signatory employers. Our Fund is managed by equal numbers of trustees from labor and management.

Working in conjunction with the Laborers' Health and Safety Fund of North America, we provide safety and health information and training to our members and signatory employers. The Fund focuses on the following areas:

  • Occupational Safety
  • Health Promotion
  • Health Care Cost Control
  • Workers Compensation
