Norbord's "Thank a Framer" Campaign is Giving America More Framers to Thank

How #THANKAFRAMER is giving America more Framers to Thank
Click to watch video

Norbord Inc. is launching its second video to kick off "Thank a Framer" month this September. This video follows the process of manufacturing oriented strand board (OSB) from the forest to the construction site, paying homage to workers in the supply chain along the way. It aims to highlight the vital role framers play and supports Norbord's efforts to ease the construction labor shortage.

With over 200,000 construction jobs vacant, the home building industry needs to train more Americans to fill these positions. Last year, Norbord launched the #ThankAFramer Campaign to raise awareness and donated US$1.1 million to the Home Builders Institute (HBI) to train framers to alleviate the labor shortage.

Do All of Your Employees Have 
Up to Date Forklift Training?
Dealers are required to train their forklift operators initially and then every three years to comply with OSHA standards. NLBMDA makes this process easy with our  Forklift & You Training Program . The program is available in both English and Spanish.

Get the only forklift training specific to the lumber and building material industry that meets all OSHA forklift training requirements. All employees who operate a forklift must be trained in order to comply with OSHA standards.
