MCA Canada Updates

MCA Canada has developed a COVID 19 guide for our membership. It outlines the recommended best practices for mechanical contractors to maintain the health and safety of their workers, and other individuals who may be impacted by their work, while performing their necessary duties during the COVID-19 pandemic.  This guideline shall not be used in place of regulatory required safety documentation and is to be used as a guide only.


Craig Yee, principal of OHS Global Risk Solutions and co-author of the newly released MCAC Covid-19 Health and Safety Guidelines conducted a webinar where he reviewed the guide and answered a variety of questions related to the guide.  View the webinar HERE.
