Our Associate members’ awards program extends the focus on safety across the industry to our suppliers’ manufacturing facilities as well.”
From the 42 manufacturing facilities nationwide that submitted data, seven awards were presented. MBMA’s Building Systems Award program has two tiers: the Superior Safety Award, which is for companies that achieved zero recordable incidents in the calendar year, and the Safety Performance Award, which is for plants with an incident rate of 50% or less than the OSHAreported average for the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code 332311 (prefabricated metal building and component manufacturing).
