CHANTILLY, Va. — Each year, the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA) congratulates its members for their outstanding performance in occupational safety and health through SMACNA’s Safety Excellence Award Program (SSEAP). With increased participation from last year, the 2017 safety survey results show that safety and health continues to be a high priority for SMACNA contractors.

SMACNA is proud to acknowledge the 2017 SSEAP winners and salute the top chapters with the highest level of survey participants. For the SSEAP, member winners are determined by man-hour categories and Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) incidence rates. The Canadian SSEAP awards an overall first place winner and two honorable mention winners based on statistics particular to Canadian safety programs.

First-place winners and the overall Canadian winner will receive their trophies at SMACNA’s 74th Annual Convention in Hawaii during the annual business meeting on Oct. 25. Second place, third place, and honorable mention winners will receive their trophies in the mail this summer.
