NORWALK, Conn. — Emcor Group Inc., a leading provider of mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure, and building services, announced it was presented its third Chairman’s Award from CNA. The Chairman’s Award recognizes Emcor for its outstanding efforts promoting good work practice in the construction and services industries. The award was presented at the opening of Emcor’s 2016 Safety Meeting in Orlando, Florida; Emcor president and CEO, Tony Guzzi, and David Copley, Emcor vice president of safety and quality management, received the award from CNA’s Bill Boyd, senior vice president, risk control.

“CNA is proud to recognize Emcor as a three-time CNA Chairman’s Award recipient for their exceptional safety record and commitment to employee well-being,” said Boyd. “We first recognized Emcor with the CNA Chairman's Award in 2009 for their Be There for Life, Zero Injury Program and again recognized Emcor in 2013 for their innovative Changing Way We Work Program (CW3). Emcor’s ability to recognize and tackle industry problems head-on is one of the key reasons Emcor’s safety, quality, and productivity performance consistently leads the industry, and why we’re excited to once again make them a CNA Chairman’s Award recipient.”

“We are extremely gratified to be recognized by CNA, once again, for our innovative approach to safety, quality, and productivity,” said Guzzi. “Safety is a strategic imperative for Emcor and a cornerstone of our corporate culture. We are committed to the principle that safety is to be a focal point at each and every job site, and it starts at the top. Keeping our employees safe is a tremendous part of who we are and what we do.”

“To be a leader in today’s construction and services industries means recognizing the problems of these industries and doing something about it,” stated Copley. “Poor work practice not only causes injuries but is also at the root of waste, damage, and rework. Customers want the job done right and that’s why at Emcor we strive for continuous improvement. Our good work practice outreach program is the result of collaboration across Emcor’s 75+ operating companies; it not only improves their outcomes but also raises the bar across the industry.”

Emcor’s facility services include mechanical, electrical, lighting, air conditioning, heating, security, fire protection, and power generation systems, for a diverse range of businesses, organizations, and government. For more information, visit
