“Despite being on the executive board of my school’s MCAA Chapter, I still didn’t fully appreciate what it is actually like to work for a mechanical contractor until this presentation. The “A Day in the Life of Ted” video was an excellent view as to what makes your section of the industry different than a typical building contractor.” That was one student’s reaction to the video at MCAA’s GreatFutures Forum.
Help your company’s safety director increase his or her knowledge of construction health and safety subjects, and improve that persons professional standing by encouraging the earning of the professional safety certification… Construction Health and Safety Technician – Professional Designation – CHST.
Make sure your service techs have the up-to-date safety training they need to protect themselves from arc flash and electrical shock hazards while working on equipment pushing 480 volts or less.

Back in June, OSHA issued a proposed rule to delay enforcement of the electronic reporting requirements established in its revised recordkeeping rule – Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses. The rule proposed to delay the enforcement date from July 1, 2017 to December 1, 2017. However, the proposed rule has still not been finalized. MCAA is unaware of any OSHA enforcement activity on the rule, and is uncertain whether the agency will begin or increase enforcement on December 1, 2017. MCAA recommends that members get into compliance with the rule by December 1st.
