Model Electrical Safety in the Workplace Program (Based on parts of NFPA 70E – 2021)

NFPA 70E – 2021 states that each employer shall implement and document an overall electrical safety program that directs activity appropriate to the risk associated with electrical hazards. This model program will help you develop an electrical safety program that is specific to your company’s needs.

Successful VDC Management Flowchart

The best way to understand your company’s technology challenges is to understand your processes. This workflow tool helps you understand and document your company’s entire project management flow, including the application of fabrication, BIM and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) processes. It identifies in detail the potential implementation of VDC throughout each phase of the project lifecycle and details the team members involved and their specific responsibilities for each phase of the construction process. (Note: MCAA members will need to set up a free Lucidchart account and create a copy of the template to customize the flowchart for their company’s processes.)

Model Fall Rescue Safety Program and Plan

Quick rescue is paramount to keeping workers safe while they are suspended in fall arrest harnesses after falling from an elevation. Having a safety program and plan in place to address the needs of these workers is critical to minimizing suspension trauma and meeting OSHA requirements. MCAA’s model program and accompanying model plan can be tailored to address various project fall arrest system applications and ensure the safety of your company’s most important asset, its workers.
