Only a Few Spots Remain for the WiMI Conference

MCAA and MSCA are hosting our first Women in the Mechanical Industry Conference this summer, bringing together women leaders from across the country. The conference will be held June 24-26, 2019 in Chicago, IL. All women employed by an MSCA or MCAA member company are encouraged to join us for this unique opportunity.  The program will feature several exceptional speakers, including Nicole Malachowski, who was recently inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. The conference line-up is sure to inspire you to dream big and hone your skills to enable you to become better leaders and role models. Only a few spots remain, so register today!

According to an article published by Contracting Business, between 2017 and 2018, the number of women working in construction trades increased by 17.6 percent, rising to well over a quarter of a million women (276,000). While this growth is the highest in over two decades, women still remain underrepresented in the field.

MSCA Chair, Kip Bagley, (EMCOR Services Mesa Energy Systems, Irvine, CA) spoke at the New England MSCA membership meeting and joined Local 537 to celebrate their new Pipefitters Training Center last month in Boston, MA.

If workers inhale a large enough concentration of microscopic crystalline silica particles it can lead to silicosis, lung cancer, and other health problems. MCAA’s Guide to Silica Safety provides mechanical construction employers with the information they need to help their workers protect themselves.

There may be a defect in a dorsal d-ring utilized in ExoFit NEX™ harnesses manufactured between January 2016 and December 2018.  3M Fall Protection urges all affected users to inspect the harnesses immediately. They should not be used until they pass inspection.

At many jobsites across the country, April means the removal of hard hat liners and no longer having to factor the impact of snow days into the schedule. Here at MCAA, April means the launch of the year’s first Institute for Project Management classes, where we welcome the nation’s best and brightest Mechanical PMs to our two-week intensive educational programs.

By switching to iBusiness Technologies’ MobiliForms mobile solution, Wilkes & Company simplified its reporting and reduced costs so much that the entire system paid for itself within 12 months. The rapid return on investment was particularly welcome, as a previous attempt to upgrade its software was wreaking havoc on the company during the first six months of implementation.

MCAA recently added information to its safety bulletin and model program on confined spaces in construction to emphasize that even when employers are in compliance with OSHA’s confined spaces in construction standard, they are still required to comply with applicable parts of the agency’s welding and cutting standard.

Built in the 1950s, White Plains High School in New York has stood the test of time, so when an HVAC upgrade was needed, school administrators wanted to keep it simple—and minimize cost and downtime. They selected Daikin Applied variable refrigerant volume (VRV) solutions to replace their aging systems with new, more efficient ones that fit the bill. Now, the school not only has a comfortable climate but also a more energy-efficient, quieter, and healthier classroom environment.
