University Mechanical Contractors’ commitment to industry safety helps drive safety on many of its projects, keeping the focus of the general contractor and assisting other specialty contractors with their safety concerns.

UMC employees are empowered to take ownership of the company’s safety program and share ideas that keep the emphasis on safety. Three of Western Washington’s major general contractors — Sellen, Hoffman and Skanska — have recognized UMC for this commitment.

UMC takes a proactive and inclusive stance on safety. The company strives to promote the safety of all workers in the industry by taking a leadership role in several organizations, and has invested its resources into representing and developing safety in the industry.

UMC’s safety director sits on the Washington State Construction Advisory Committee and has served on several Division of Occupational Safety and Health task forces. UMC’s safety director is also chairman of the safety committees for AGC of Washington and the Mechanical Contractors Association of Western Washington. Participation in these organizations is an effective way for UMC to share ideas and set standards that protect the overall safety of the mechanical industry.

UMC demonstrates leadership, fosters communication and seeks collaboration. Company management believes it is their responsibility to aid in the advancement of safety within the industry. To this end, UMC is dedicated to continual safety improvement in the mechanical industry.
