SMACNA Recognizes 2018 Winners for Safety Excellence

Aug 14, 2018
Last year, SMACNA’s first-place 2017 Safety Excellence Award winners were recognized at the 74th Annual Convention in October in Maui. SMACNA is also proud to salute the overall winner of the Canadian safety excellence program.

Each year, SMACNA recognizes its members for their outstanding performances in occupational safety and health through SMACNA’s Safety Excellence Award Program. With increased participation above last year, the 2018 safety survey results demonstrate that protecting safety and health continues to be a high priority for SMACNA contractors.

SMACNA is proud to acknowledge the following 2018 Safety Excellence Award winners, and to salute the top chapters with the highest level of survey participants.

Winners of the Safety Excellence Award Program are determined by man-hour categories and OSHA incidence rates.

The Canadian Safety Excellence Award Program recognizes an overall first place winner and two honorable mention winners, which are determined based on regional statistics specific to Canadian safety programs.

Second place, third place, and honorable mention safety winners will receive their trophies by mail this summer. First place winners, and the overall Canadian winner, will be recognized and will receive their trophies during SMACNA’s annual business meeting on Wednesday Oct. 17 at SMACNA’s 75th Annual Convention in San Diego.

SMACNA congratulates all the award winners on an excellent year and thanks to all the members who participated in the program. All SMACNA members are encouraged to participate in the program, and continue to strive toward the goal of improved safety excellence.
