ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) has released the latest in its supervisor safety training series - Reduce the Risk: Pre-Task Safety and Health Planning for Supervisors. MCAA said the safety training DVD provides the education that mechanical construction supervisors need to reduce risks by pre-planning for potentially hazardous tasks.

By watching the DVD, viewers will learn how to:

• Identify potentially hazardous tasks;

• Conduct task hazard analyses; and

• Implement corresponding safe work procedures.

“This resource shows supervisors how to include safety as a standard part of their normal construction planning processes,” said Pete Chaney, MCAA’s director of safety and health. “Pre-planning has been shown to reduce the risk of workplace injuries and illnesses.” A study conducted by the Construction Industry Institute identified pre-project/pre-task safety and health planning as one of five critical components of a successful safety program.

“This DVD was originally designed for project managers and foremen, but it’s also a superb training resource for workers,” added Tom Skaggs, chairman of MCAA’s Safety and Health Committee and vice president – safety for the Murphy Company. “Being able to reach workers and supervisors is what has made MCAA’s safety and health resources so successful since 1998.”

MCAA members and local affiliated associations will receive a free copy of the DVD in their regular membership mailing. Non-members may order through MCAA’s online store at www.mcaa.org/store.
