20 Years of Safety Excellence – February 2023: Personal Protective Equipment

PPE is the last line of defense, and sometimes all you need to prevent and injury or save a life. Preventable injuries impact our safety culture, company morale, and our bottom lines. This month’s kit includes our newest videos on hearing protection, head protection, eye protection, respiratory protection, and hand protection. These videos are a candid look at what happens when you don’t wear PPE, and how easily you can help yourself and others by wearing these lifesaving pieces of personal protection.

MCAA 20 Years of Safety Excellence PPE Series: Eye Protection

PPE is the last line of defense, and sometimes all you need to prevent and injury or save a life. To celebrate 20 years of safety excellence, MCAA is releasing five impactful videos in 2023 to help improve safety & health across the entire industry.

MCAA Model COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Policy

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has issued an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on COVID-19. This Model COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Policy addresses the ETS, which was issued on November 5, 2021. The standard applies to all mechanical construction, service, and fabrication shop employers. The standard has been temporarily stayed by the Fifth Circuit. However, the stay could be temporarily lifted. This Model COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Policy is available to you in case the stay is temporarily lifted, and OSHA decides to initiative enforcement.

This quick reference tool provides critical information on 84 safety and health topics that are specific to work performed by mechanical service technicians, including information on the newest and most frequently used refrigerants, substantive changes to NFPA 70E, and new information on how to properly administer CPR.

Safety Manual for Mechanical Construction Workers

This quick reference tool provides critical information on everything from aerial lift safety to preventing overexposure to zinc to keep mechanical construction workers safe. It includes new information on administering CPR, beryllium, recent changes to NFPA 70E, and more.

Model Fall Rescue Safety Program and Plan

Quick rescue is paramount to keeping workers safe while they are suspended in fall arrest harnesses after falling from an elevation. Having a safety program and plan in place to address the needs of these workers is critical to minimizing suspension trauma and meeting OSHA requirements. MCAA’s model program and accompanying model plan can be tailored to address various project fall arrest system applications and ensure the safety of your company’s most important asset, its workers.

Model Safety Program for Mechanical Service

It’s critically important for all mechanical service firms to have a current, sound company safety program. The program should describe the safety policies, safety procedures, and safe work practices the company is implementing to help protect its service technicians and other workers from workplace hazards. The model program, which can be easily tailored to meet specific company needs, includes everything from an initial sample safety policy statement to required safe work practices for 33 different mechanical industry-specific safety and health subjects.
