H.L. Moe Company, Inc. Recognized for Safety Excellence

November 4, 2020
Ethan Hachey, Safety Director and Mike Davis, President with their award.

MCAA and CNA are pleased to announce that H.L. Moe Company, Inc. earned the association’s top safety award for 2019 in Size Category 2, 100,001 – 250,000 work hours. H.L. Moe Company’s successful “Cart Mounted Vise” program to address ergonomics set the company apart.

The program outfits each worker with a “Cart Mounted Vise.” The vise eliminates the need to bend down to perform the work. Instead, the vise lifts the work up to the employees. With the implementation of the cart vises, which include a fire extinguisher mounted on each of them, the company virtually eliminated one-handed cutting of pipe, bending over, soldering on unsecured surfaces, and performing hot work without a fire extinguisher nearby.

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 H.L. Moe Company, Inc. for earning such a high degree of safety excellence in 2019.
