As announced by, “The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) annually honors member companies that demonstrate exceptional performance in maintaining workplace safety. These awards are given to Building Systems members as well as Associate members for their performance during the previous calendar year. Safety awards for the 2019 year were presented during the 2020 MBMA Annual Meeting, held virtually, December 8-9, 2020.”

Tony Bouquot, general manager of MBMA commented, “In 2019, our Building Systems members had 41 plant facilities that participated in MBMA’s Quarterly OSHA Injury Statistics Program, logging over 11.7 million hours on the job. Our Associate member awards program extends the focus on safety across the industry to our suppliers’ facilities as well.”

The 2019 Superior Safety Award was given to the five plants that achieved zero recordable cases for the 12-month period, which is a significant accomplishment. The seven recipients of the 2019 Safety Performance Award achieved an incident rate of 1.40 or lower. The 2019 Associate Member Safety Award went to four companies with facilities that achieved zero recordable cases for 2019, also a major achievement.
