The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association (SMACNA) has won the Award of Excellence in the 2001 Associations Advance America Awards program, a national competition sponsored by the American Society of Association Executives.
SMACNA received the award for Safety Excellence Plus, a new customized safety software program specifically for the sheet metal industry. The software allows a firm to create an entire company safety program or establish a jobsite program with the click of a mouse. Document and record maintenance is reduced to simple clerical tasks and key safety personnel spend less time on paperwork and more time preventing accidents. Updates are available through a website and less time is spent keeping up to date with regulations, according to SMACNA. In the event of an emergency, information will be quickly accessible.
