Fueling Productivity in the Power-Generation Industry

In the power-generation industry, staying competitive means completing outages on time, building quickly and correctly, and maintaining equipment with pinpoint accuracy.

Millwrights from the Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council are power-generation-industry experts with the experience to solve problems and complete tasks with superior skills. SECRC millwrights are in demand in the coal, gas, and nuclear-power industries—and in alternative-energy plants including wind and hydro.

Our Certified Rigger and Signaler Program is now accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agency. The certification exceeds all requirements for riggers and signalers in the USA and Canada.


Starting with pre-project conferences to outline the scope of the work, manpower needs, and scheduling issues, our contractors keep lines of communication open throughout the life of the project. We tailor contracts to keep customers competitive, and we offer foreman and superintendent training for solid jobsite leadership.


  • Safety: Constant attention to safety is ingrained in our membership, from our leadership to our apprentices. Safety is built into every training program, and we work with our partners to proactively ensure safety and resolve individual safety issues as they occur.
  • Dedication: We come to work every day with a positive attitude, a professional appearance, and a determination to finish the job correctly, on time, the first time.
  • Availability: Our thousands of SECRC millwrights enable our contractors to be fully staffed at all times, which allows for quick responses to emergencies and other challenges.
  • Productivity: Meeting the schedule is key, and our disciplined, reliable crews know that fast, accurate installations are essential.
  • Flexibility: We keep projects on time and on budget using strategies finetuned to customer needs. We compress schedules, adjust staffing numbers, and modify work-hours, work-days, and work-weeks to get the job done.
  • Customer Service: We finish projects according to the customer’s satisfaction—and we follow through with training, maintenance, and customer service. One call puts the best-trained maintenance crews at the jobsite to get the system up and running as fast as possible.


Led by an international Labor-Management Committee, the UBC Millwright Program seeks out industry partnerships with the goal of delivering exactly what is needed on every job. Our partners assist in our training by providing equipment, expert consultation, guest instructors, and more.

For example, when a demand for turbine experts surfaced, we worked with industry leaders Atlantic Plant Maintenance and Siemens to develop gas and steam turbine qualification programs to train our millwrights in the newest powerplant technology. The UBC’s International Training center now hosts a turbine-training facility with equipment from these partners for hands-on instruction.

Our millwright training also includes technical categories such as rigging and signaling, aerial lift, machinery alignment, optical alignment, forklifts, scaffolding, welding, and bolt tensioning.


The SECRC believes a safe jobsite is achieved only through comprehensive training for every millwright on every project. Our members complete and master these health and safety training programs:

  • Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation
  • Confined Space Worker Safety
  • Ergonomics
  • Fall Arrest
  • Lock-out/Tag-Out Safety
  • SDS (Safety Data Sheets)
  • Millwright Health & Safety 16-Hour Course
  • Occupational Safety & Health Act 10-Hour Course
  • Scaffold User Safety
  • Pre-Task Analysis, Jobsite Safety Analysis
