SMACNA Announces Winners of 2021 Safety Excellence Awards

July 26, 2021

The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA), the leader in promoting quality and excellence in the sheet metal and air conditioning industry, today announced the winners of its Annual Safety Excellence Awards. The recognition program stems from SMACNA’s yearly safety survey and celebrates members who report the lowest injury and illness rates and who continue to adopt a safety culture along with safe practices on the jobsite.

“Nothing is more important to SMACNA than the health and safety of our members and their employees,” said Vince Sandusky, SMACNA’s Chief Executive Officer. “Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Safety Excellence Awards. You should feel proud of what you’ve accomplished as low injury and illness rates speak volumes to your best-in-class performance within the industry.”

27 member companies received the 2021 Safety Excellence Award for overall safety performance based on people-hours worked and OSHA incidence rates as reported in the annual safety survey. Award winners in Canada were recognized based on performance as measured against Canadian safety programs which are conducted on a provincial basis rather than the national OSHA program in the U.S. Detailed results from the U.S. survey can be found in the SMACNA Safety Statistics Profile report due out later in the summer.

First place winners will be presented with the award during SMACNA’s Annual Convention in October. All others will receive the award via mail over the summer. Award winners include:
