Decatur-based M&D Mechanical Contractors recently was awarded a national platinum STEP Award, and is one of only two North Alabama contractors to receive this designation from the Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. National Environment, Health and Safety Committee.
This is the company's sixth consecutive year to receive the platinum status for the safety award. M&D's last lost-time accident was July 26, 2007.
The STEP Award recognizes outstanding safety training efforts of ABC members. In 2011, only 571 ABC members in the nation were awarded the platinum status.
