Safety Week, a celebration of safe work practices by national and global construction firms, takes place this week. While MCAA applauds the focus on safe work practices that this special week brings to all construction firms, safety is a top priority for MCAA and its members throughout each year.
MCAA and long-time safety partner CNA develop and produce world-class safety resources for members. The resources are readily available to you to help you celebrate safety week, and keep your workers safe throughout the year. And, they are free to MCAA/MSCA members as a benefit of membership.
