Matrix HG, Inc. was recently recognized as the MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards winner for 2020 in Size Category 2, 100,001 – 250,000 Work Hours. Matrix HG, Inc.’s COVID-19 virtual safety education program set the company apart.
To help keep its workers safe where COVID-19 could be present, Matrix HG implemented a series of virtual safety education sessions. For example, a session on HVAC System Maintenance and Filter Replacement During the COVID-19 Pandemic covered pressure drop, snug filters, and filter disinfection. A second session on Ultraviolet Energy (UV-C) Ultraviolet Energy addressed the UV spectrum, modern UVGI lamps, UV-C light emitting diodes, and the types of disinfecting systems using UV-C energy.
The MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards Program began in the 1990s when MCAA partnered with CNA Insurance. It is a fiercely competitive program in which only the best of the best compete for the awards.
Participants are required to describe their safety programs in detail, including how they achieved safety excellence and why they believe they deserve the award. The Safety Awards Selection Taskforce, which is led by CNA, carefully evaluates each submission looking for safety leadership, an advanced safety culture, effective leading indicators of safety performance, and innovative safety initiatives that helped the company achieve an exceptionally high degree of safety excellence.
MCAA and CNA congratulate Matrix HG for achieving such a high degree of safety excellence in 2020.
