For MCAA Construction Safety Week Lasts All Year

April 11, 2018

Construction Safety Week is an annual industry wide-education and awareness event. The Mission of Safety Week is to, “collectively raise the awareness of the construction industry’s continuing commitment to eliminating worker injury, and to clearly communicate its dedication to a shared culture of care and concern and the belief that every week must be Safety Week.” Construction Safety Week will be officially recognized this year May 7-11. MCAA encourages you to provide your workers all year long with education and awareness on several leading causes of injuries in the mechanical construction industry, and the best ways to prevent them.  Suggested topics for 2018 are, manual handling of materials, falls from ladders, falls from other elevations, electrical hazards, and workplace distractions. Mechanical construction-specific safety resources are available to all MCAA members for free as a benefit of membership. The MCAA safety resources that address these suggested topics are accessible below.
