MANHATTAN, IL — Merit shop mechanical services contractor Manhattan Mechanical Services was awarded the Three Rivers Manufacturers’ Association (TRMA) Gold Award for a second consecutive year. 

TRMA, a manufacturing association in the Chicagoland area, focuses on promoting manufacturing excellence among its local, national, and international members. The Joliet, IL-based group recognizes and awards industrial contractor companies that exhibit high-level safety practices at TRMA manufacturing plants. These companies achieve Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable rates below the national average. 

Manhattan Mechanical Services’ 2020-2021 total recordable incident rate, or TRIR, is zero at over one million man-hours, according to corporate safety manager Nate Hassett, who adds: “At Manhattan Mechanical, a deep-rooted safety culture is ingrained into each of our craftsmen. Keeping safety at the forefront of each project is the number-one priority.”
