Safety & Health was in the spotlight last week in Tucson, AZ, at the 2024 Safety & Health Conference. In front of a sold-out crowd, MCAA President Robert Beck highlighted contractors’ commitment to worker safety and health and MCAA leadership in guiding the way.

“Over the past year I have been so proud of the work of MCAA’s Safety & Health Committee and our Safety Excellence Initiative. Our whole organization has taken notice to the increased attendance at this conference, the output of quality safety & health resources, and the impact that our mechanical contractor’s organization is having on the whole industry to improve safety & health.”

Robert J. Beck, MCAA President

Attendees had the opportunity to learn from over a dozen industry experts on topics like fall prevention and protection, mental health awareness, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulatory activity, and the state of construction safety.

We were also fortunate to be joined by ASSP (American Society of Safety Professionals) CEO Jennifer McNelly, and attendees had an opportunity to receive a NARCAN certification and medication kit.

MCAA was overwhelmed with the positive feedback from our partners at the United Association, and our welcomed guests from The Association of Union Constructors.

Mark your calendars for the 2025 Safety & Health Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, January 14-16th at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach.

A Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rule banning non-compete clauses is set to go into effect on September 4, 2024. Under the rule, non-competes are broadly defined as any arrangement that prohibits, penalizes, or functionally prevents a worker from getting a new job or starting a business after leaving their employment, even if the agreements are not labelled as non-competes.
