Specialty contractor: Safety
Over 1 million hours

MacDonald-Miller helped create safety presentations for small contractors on topics such as heat stress and fall protection.


MacDonald-Miller is more like a family than a company. Their culture dictates that, first and foremost, employees will work safely regardless of the challenges they face. They believe that working safely provides a higher-quality product and allows their staff to work more productively.

In the last two years MacDonald-Miller has teamed up with another employer and with the Sheet Metal and Mechanical Contractors Association of Washington (SMACNA) to create narrated safety presentations. These are provided free of charge to other SMACNA contractors in an effort to ensure that even the smallest contractors, who cannot afford their own full-time safety professional, will have access to out-of-the-box training classes on subjects like heat stress, asbestos/lead awareness, fall protection and more.

MacDonald-Miller’s top goal for the coming year is to provide more arc-flash training to their technicians to ensure that they better understand the dangers of the use of RF (radio frequency) equipment. They created an RF class and purchased an RF meter to begin doing research on their sites to determine specific levels of RF on and around their projects.
