UMC Earns Top MCAA/CNA Safety Award

May 15, 2023

UMC was recently recognized as the MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards winner for 2022 in Size Category 4, 450,001 – 1,000,000 Work Hours. UMC’s mental health focus and “Pride-based Safety” program set the company apart.

UMC established a safety program to inspire the overarching principle that motivates UMC’s team to work safely and look out for one another – pride. The “Pride-based Safety” program is centered around knowing that you are doing the right thing at the right time for the right reasons, especially when no one is looking.

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 UMC for achieving such a high degree of safety excellence in 2022.
