MCAA and long-time safety partner CNA are extending the deadline for members to apply for the most prestigious safety awards in the mechanical construction and service industry. The annual MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards program honors MCAA member companies’ successful safety programs and innovative safety initiatives because nothing is more important than the health and safety of our workers. Take a moment to celebrate your company’s successes in the age of COVID-19 – APPLY TODAY!

To be eligible to win, a company needs to submit an application by January 22, 2021 describing:

• Its safety and health program in 2020 and why it believes it deserves the award, and
• An innovation that helped it achieve a high degree of safety excellence during the year

Companies will be divided into five categories by number of hours worked, and a winner will be chosen in each category. Each winner will receive national recognition and an attractive glass award for display.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact Pete Chaney at or 301-990-2214.
