HEART 9/11 is excited to announce the launch of our Bahamas Pre-Apprentice Program in the Grand Bahamas. HEART 9/11 has partnered with the University of The Bahamas, Revelation Faith Apostolic Ministries, Ride for Hope, and Templeton Religion Trust to offer “Safety in The Workplace.” This course will be instrumental in reviewing common hazards and safety techniques on the worksite. After completion, participants will have the tools to help them create workplace Safety policies. By identifying and anticipating risks, employers can prevent injuries and keep employees safe.
One hundred fifty applications were received for 17 openings. Classroom instruction will include OSHA 10, mathematics, CPR, first aid, construction safety, tool familiarization, and additional construction skills. Professional carpenter instructors will conduct hands-on training while students are rebuilding community centers, schools, churches, and homes damaged by Hurricane Dorian. HEART 9/11 is excited to begin this worthwhile endeavor to “teach a person to fish” while assisting their neighbor’s recovery
