EMCOR Services Scalise Industries was recently recognized as the MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards winner for 2022 in Size Category 2, 100,001 – 250,000 Work Hours. The EMCOR Services Scalise Industries safety committee’s approach of setting attainable goals to change safety culture set the company apart.
For example, the committee, which is comprised of management, changed driving behavior using GPS vehicle telematics. The ESSI Safety Program identifies hazards in order to prevent incidents with personal injury, property damage, fire damage, and occupational illness, any of which could result in human pain and suffering.
The MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards 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.
This is one of the most competitive safety awards programs in the country and winners are highly regarded among their peers.
The award focuses on safety and health programs, safety innovations and achievements in safety to reach a high degree of safety and health excellence. Companies are divided into five categories by number of hours worked and winners are selected by a committee of their peers.
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 EMCOR Services Scalise Industries for achieving such a high degree of safety excellence in 2022.
