In 2014, MacDonald-Miller Facilities Solutions created a new and proactive Safety Star/Safety Champion incentive program to recognize safety leaders among its staff. Winners are selected quarterly from each trade and department via nominations and direct observations.

The company has also recently created its own electronic safety classes for employees working remotely, covering topics such as ladder safety, heat stress prevention, asbestos and lead awareness, and radio frequency topics.

MacDonald-Miller offers its own OSHA 30 class twice each year, allowing subject matter to be tailored specifically to the mechanical industry. The last class offered filled up within 24 hours, with many employees asking to be put on a waiting list for the next offering.

MacDonald-Miller’s safety director and safety specialists regularly perform site-safety audits that are graded, compared to one another, and presented to their vice president of operations and all superintendents each quarter. Audits are reviewed to identify and correct the most common issue, and safety awards are presented to the top-performing crews.
