Waldwick, N.J. – Armistead Mechanical, Inc., a provider of mechanical construction, engineering and contracting services throughout the New Jersey/New York area, was presented with a safety award from the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) on March 11 during the organization’s annual conference. The award is given by MCAA in conjunction with CNA, one of the nation's largest and most respected business insurance companies offering programs designed specifically for mechanical contractors.
The awards program identifies, encourages and rewards exemplary professional safety. To be eligible to win one of the five MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards, a company must earn safety statistics exceeding the nationwide industry averages, as well as submit a written application detailing its safety program, including any innovative initiatives that helped it achieve such high degrees of safety. In recent years, the selection process has grown so competitive that additional phone interviews have been necessary to determine final award recipients.
The Mechanical Contractors Association of America serves the unique needs of approximately 2,800 firms involved in heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, plumbing, process piping and mechanical service. The organization provides members with high-quality educational materials and programs to help them attain the highest level of managerial and technical expertise.
