Steel Life HIA & BlueScope Steel have joined forces to create steel framing apprentice assistance to educate construction workers.
A training day was conducted to educate apprentices on the benefits of using steel. Representatives from BlueScope Steel, NASH (National Association of Steel-framed Housing), McDonald Jones Homes and Supaloc attended the day.
A new website has also been created by BlueScope to assist tradespeople in understanding and erecting steel framing. The site contains information through videos and fact sheets to assist frame fixers, plasterers, 2nd fix carpenters, plumbers and electricians when working with steel frames. It features the very helpful BlueScope talking blue heeler Bluey to guide tradies through the site. The website can be accessed here.
