By Midwest Roofing Contractors Association (MRCA).
The Midwest Roofing Contractors Association Safety Program Award recognizes MRCA member companies that have excelled in their safety practices. This program encourages and recognizes roofing contractors who strive to adhere to the best practices in technical knowledge, business management and safety.
The MRCA Elite Safety Program Award is granted to those who have demonstrated a commitment to improving jobsite safety through development, implementation and enforcement of a safety and risk management program.
Members who apply for this award submit the answers to a series of questions regarding their program. Their safety plans are reviewed and scored by MRCA legal counsel, Gary Auman. All member companies that submit applications will receive a detailed written critique of their safety program from Auman, Mahan & Furry as well as their awards.
This year, the application for the Safety Awards Program and the ELITE Contractor program has been combined. To become an ELITE Contractor, a firm must earn a Bronze or higher award on their safety program review and meet additional criteria such as being registered or licensed in the jurisdictions in which they perform work, being OSHA Compliant, meeting state insurance, bonding and workers compensation requirements and they also have to complete eight hours of industry-related continuing education.
The application deadline this year is August 1, 2021. Elite Safety Award Winners will be announced in November 2021!
