UMC, Inc. Earns Top MCAA/CNA Safety Award in Category 4

June 11, 2024

UMC, Inc. was selected as the MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards winner for 2023 in Size Category 4, 450,001-1,000,000 Work Hours. UMC, Inc.’s exceptional worker safety and health program has won this prestigious award two years in a row, and four of the last seven years.

With over 5 million workhours in the past six years, they have recorded exceptionally low injury and illness rates, and are the platinum standard that GCs look to partner with to develop jobsite policies for safety and health.

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 MCAA’s Safety & Health Committee, 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, Inc. for achieving such a high degree of safety excellence in 2023.
