New MCAA Safety Training Video on Musculoskeletal Wellness for Mechanical Construction Workers Now Available

July 14, 2017

MCAA recently released its new safety training video Better by Design: Musculoskeletal Wellness for Mechanical Construction Workers. The video, which replaces the association’s obsolete (2002) video on the safe manual handling of materials, addresses the most common causes of non-trauma related musculoskeletal pains and injuries in the mechanical construction industry. It includes safe work and personal health practices to help prevent them. Accompanying safety training materials, including a pocket guide, a training documentation sheet, and a 20-question multiple choice test with answer key are also available. The video is the first in a series of three MCAA worker safety training videos for 2017. Watch for the second video on safe pressure testing of steel and copper piping systems in August, and the third video on protection from workplace violence in November. Electronic access to all MCAA safety resources is free to members as a benefit of membership.
