MPW Environmental Services, Inc., accepted two Zero Injury Safety Awards (ZISAs) from the National Maintenance Agreements Policy Committee, Inc. (NMAPC), for 2016.
The awards are for 214,922 zero-injury man-hours at FirstEnergy’s Bruce Mansfield Plant in Shippingport, Pennsylvania and 79,733 zero-injury man-hours at FirstEnergy’s W. H. Sammis Plant in Stratton, Ohio.
“MPW is honored to receive these awards, as they represent the culmination of a lot of training, planning and demanding work by all of our people with the support of Painters Local Union No. 53 and FirstEnergy,” said MPW General Manager Jimmy Peck. “Safety is MPW’s top core value and we’ve done an exceptional job of incorporating more automated technology to take personnel out of harm’s way.”
The teams that earned these honors also helped MPW’s Steubenville Branch collect the 2016 Green Hat for Safety Award, which is awarded annually to an MPW group that “demonstrates a steadfast commitment to improving safety and health in the workplace and beyond.”
NMAPC’s 17th annual awards ceremony took place on November 2 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
NMAPC created its ZISA program to recognize world-class safety, which is an integral component of the organization’s governance. The award is open to all contractors, industrial business owners/clients and building trades crafts on projects performed under the terms of the National Maintenance Agreements or National Power Generation Maintenance Agreements program.
