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.

Incidence Rates MCAA Members U.S. BLS
Recordable Cases Incidence Rates 1.8 4.1

Mechanical industry workers are much safer now than they were in the past. For example, the aggregate MCAA member incidence rate for recordable worker injuries fell over a 21 year period from 8.2 in 1998 to 1.2 in 2018, and the lost workday cases incidence rate fell from 3.9 in 1998 to 0.2 in 2018. However, there is still work to do, especially in the areas of manual handling of materials/physical stress, falls, and struck by object hazards. Recent data shared with us by long-time partner in safety CNA highlights where we need to focus our attention concerning mechanical industry injury frequency and severity. The data is specific to MCAA member firms insured by CNA.…
