First annual NCMCA Safety Awards
Recognizing masonry contractors who exemplify superior safety
By Lynn Nash
2014 will be the first year of the annual NCMCA Safety Award. The award will have two categories. Masonry contractors with less than 100,000 annual man hours in 2013, and masonry contractors with over 100,000 man hours.
The purpose of the award is to recognize masonry contractors who exemplify superior safety and loss prevention practices and have the lowest incident of recorded injuries and loss time accidents. This award will help promote the awareness of Safety in the NCMCA as well as provide the winning contractors with recognition by not only the NCMCA, but a tool to help promote their own safety culture within their organization as well as to General Contractors, Owners and Architects, etc.
Application will be available to all masonry contractor members of the NCMCA in January. Applicants must me a member of the NCMCA in order to be eligible. Completed applications will be reviewed and scored by John Cramer and Tom Hayes of TriSure, who will underwrite the cost of this annual award. Deadline for entries is March 15, 2014. The winners will be announced and presented at the annual NCMCA convention in April at The Homestead in Hot Springs.
