Mall City Mechanical was recently recognized as the MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Award winner for 2020 in Size Category 3, 250,001 – 450,000 Work Hours. Mall City Mechanical developed and implemented a successful Safety Competent Person Training Program, which set the company apart.
The training program qualified a person on every company jobsite to maintain appropriate safety awareness and hazard prevention practices. Among other subjects, the Safety Competent Person is trained on silica awareness, ladder safety, fire safety, lockout/tagout, fall protection, and aerial lift safety. In addition to ensuring jobsite safety, the program has allowed the company’s Safety Manager to spend more time on other pressing mechanical industry safety and health issues.
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 Mall City Mechanical for achieving such a high degree of safety excellence in 2020.
