MCAA’s Virtual Trade Show connects our contractor members with the members of MCAA’s Manufacturer/Supplier Council.
Guy’s Mechanical Systems discovered that the Viega MegaPress Press-In Branch Connector saved them time by reducing the steps for installation in the process of remodeling a 20-story high-rise in downtown Pittsburgh. Renovating the aged building—constructed in 1902—into a hotel has been a complicated process, and Foreman Josh Mitchell said MegaPress has made it simpler. Viega is an MCAA benefactor sponsor.
Frank Wall has joined the MCAA staff as the association’s Executive Director, Operations. Frank is no stranger to MCAA. He was the Executive Director of the Plumbing and Mechanical Contractors Association of Oregon for 12 years, followed by two years as the Executive Vice President of the M&SCA of Eastern Pennsylvania. During that time, he was also Chair of MCAA’s Association Executives Council. “I am personally excited to work with such a professional staff,” Frank said.
Sloan, an MCAA member, has partnered with Kansas State University to sponsor two courses in the Department of Interior Architecture and Industrial Design (IAID). The sponsorship builds on Sloan’s relationship with the university, which is also home to an MCAA Student Chapter.
Registration for MCAA’s newest project management program is open! The upcoming Preparatory Institute for Project Management begins October 13th. This 12-week online curriculum is designed to help flatten the learning curve for those new to the world of mechanical project management.
Model Safety Program for Mechanical Service
It’s critically important for all mechanical service firms to have a current, sound company safety program. The program should describe the safety policies, safety procedures, and safe work practices the company is implementing to help protect its service technicians and other workers from workplace hazards. The model program, which can be easily tailored to meet specific company needs, includes everything from an initial sample safety policy statement to required safe work practices for 33 different mechanical industry-specific safety and health subjects.MCAAMSCAPCASafety
Creating a Contractor Ergonomics Program to Reduce Soft Tissue Injuries Among Construction Workers
MCAA believes that ergonomics should be a standard part of every company’s overall safety program. Recently MCAA partnered with The Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR), Washington University in St. Louis, and Best Built Plans to develop and record a webinar on Creating a Contractor Ergonomics Program to Reduce Soft Tissue Injuries Among Construction Workers. The webinar is ideal for helping viewers understand the vital components of a successful ergonomics program, and why the components are so vital.MCAAMSCAPCASafetySafety & Health Initiative
