Congratulations to this Year’s Participants in the MCAA Safety Statistics & Awards Program

The MCAA member firms that participated in this year’s Safety Statistics and Awards Program are much safer than most mechanical construction firms in the industry. Compared to the industry’s incidence rate aggregates established by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), MCAA members performed substantially better than most.

Recordable Cases Incidence Rates 1.8 4.1
Lost Workday Cases Incidence Rates .31 2.1
