ROCKVILLE, Md. —The Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) released the second in a series of safety bulletins as part of its celebration of National Safety Month. The new bulletin, Preventing Slips, Trips, and Falls, provides information that mechanical construction and service contractors can use to address these common jobsite hazards.

“Slips, trips, and falls account for a significant number of jobsite injuries in our industry. By providing educational bulletins like this one, MCAA’s Safety and Health Committee is helping our members to reduce the number of these accidents,” said Pete Chaney, MCAA’s director of safety and health.

Tom Skaggs, chairman of MCAA’s Safety and Health Committee and vice president of safety for the Murphy Co. added, “Taking simple precautions such as instilling a culture that values good housekeeping and looking out for one another can go a long way toward minimizing slips, trips, and falls.”

The Preventing Slips, Trips, and Falls bulletin is available at, where additional information from MCAA’s Safety Excellence Initiative is highlighted.
