Do your fab shop workers need a quick reference for working safely in the shop? MCAA’s Safety Manual for Mechanical Fabrication Shop Workers will provide them with critical information on everything from working safely with overhead and gantry cranes to preventing overexposure to manganese while performing hot work. Members can download the manual free as a benefit of membership, or purchase print copies for their workers who prefer them.
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.
Congratulations to everyone at J.C. Cannistraro, LLC for being named PHC News magazine’s Contractor of the Year! The company, which is a member of MCAA and the New England MCA, was selected for its reputation as a leader in modular prefabrication and a very early adopter of construction technology.
