MCAA Gateway: May 2019

MCAA Safety Advantage Awards 

Submissions are open for the 2019 MCAA Safety Advantage Awards, sponsored by Federated Insurance.  The goal of the MCAA Safety Advantage Awards is to help draw attention to the need and benefits of performing safely. 

The MCAA Safety Advantage Awards will be presented based on a mason contractor’s incident rate. The incident rate is calculated by multiplying the number of injuries and illnesses from the OSHA Form 300 by 200,000, divided by the total number of hours worked by all employees for the year. 

All entries will be tabulated and awards will be presented at the MCAA Midyear Meeting to the top two companies with less than 100,000 hours worked by all employees, and the top two companies with more than 100,000 hours worked by all employees. Entry is free for MCAA members. 

Visit www.masoncontractors.org/safety/awards to enter your company. 

Submissions must be received by June 30, 2019. 

MCAA’s Fifteenth Annual Online Auction a Success 

Bidders, generous donors make auction a hit 

Words: Tim O’Toole  

The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) held its thirteenth annual Online Auction from April 23 to April 25, 2019 at www.masoncontractors.org/auction.

Contractors were able to bid on several new, name brand items for half the cost of retail including scaffolding, mortar boards, trowels and much more. Bidding was fast and furious, but there could only be one winner for each of the great items. Many lots came down to the final seconds, making it an exciting auction for all involved.

The MCAA would like to thank the following companies for their generous donations. We appreciate your support of the industry:
