Postler & Jaeckle Corp., a Rochester, NY Mechanical Contracting firm, announced that they have received the 2019 MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Award.
This prestigious award is presented to the top five mechanical contracting companies in North America, based on the number of hours worked. The award recognizes innovative safety initiatives and safety program success. Postler & Jaeckle Corp. earned the Safety Excellence Award for their company size category (400,000 – 1,000,000 hours).
Postler & Jaeckle Corp. has incorporated safety as a fundamental core value in all their construction processes. P&J established and continually updates its Safety Program to promote the health and well-being of all employees and others on their job sites and in their facilities. In addition to utilizing specific safety and health procedures, policies and training programs that require both management and employee responsibilities, P&J continuously adjusts current best practices, as they regularly assess safety experience, reflect on “lessons learned” and encourage employees to share ideas and report any potential hazards. Given these efforts, new policies and procedures are constantly being implemented to enhance P&J’s Safety Program. Specifically, in 2019 additional proactive initiatives were implemented in an effort to further improve planning operations and overall communications with employees. These initiatives include; Daily Pre-Task Planning Meetings, Project Managers’ Safety Audits, adding a Service-Specific Safety Committee, and a company-specific Weekly Safety Topic.

About the MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards Program
Back in the 1990s, MCAA partnered with CNA Insurance to bring MCAA members the MCAA/CNA Safety Excellence Awards Program. It is a fiercely competitive program, which results in only the best of the best competing for the awards. Participants are required to describe their respective safety programs in detail, why they believe they deserve the award, and how they achieved safety excellence.
The Safety Awards Selection Taskforce, which is led by CNA, carefully evaluates each submission looking for safety leadership, an advanced safety culture, effective leading indicators of safety performance, and innovative safety initiatives that helped the company achieve such a high degree of safety excellence. The awards are presented at the MCAA Awards of Excellence Breakfast during the association’s annual convention where more than 1,000 people gather to celebrate excellence in the mechanical construction industry.
