June 9, 2016 (FPRC) -- CLEVELAND, OHIO – www.mbma.com: The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) annually recognizes metal building systems manufacturers that show exceptional commitment to assuring workplace safety. The Annual MBMA Safety Awards were presented at the MBMA Spring Meeting held May 10-11, 2016 in Fort Worth, Texas.

“Last year, a total of 45 plant facilities participated in MBMA’s Quarterly OSHA Injury Statistics Program,” states Dan Walker, PE, Associate General Manager of MBMA. “Awards were presented to recognize plants with noteworthy safety records, which is based on our analysis of submitted data that is directly compared to the OSHA industry average.”

MBMA’s members are committed to the safety of everyone who works in the metal building systems industry. The organization has had a long-standing Safety Committee and Safety Award Program, which was revamped in 2013 to increase the stringency of the awards so that companies with truly outstanding safety performance records are acknowledged for their achievements. “Our members are focused on providing a safe work environment for their employees, and MBMA is very pleased to recognize their commitment through these awards,” says Walker.

From the 45 manufacturing facilities nationwide that submitted data, 10 awards were presented. MBMA’s award criteria stipulates that winning plants must have work-related accident and illness rates that are 50% or less than the OSHA-reported averages for the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code 332311 (Prefabricated metal building and component manufacturing). For the Safety Performance Award, the industry average incident rate, as reported by OSHA, was 5.0 for NAICS Code 332311. Therefore, MBMA’s award cut off was just 2.5 or fewer incidents.

The Superior Safety Award, under the rules of the MBMA Program, was awarded to the plant that achieved zero recordable cases for the 12-month period, which is a significant accomplishment.

Awards were presented at the following levels to individual plant locations:
