ZISA®:  Honoring Excellence in
Union Construction and Maintenance

Each fall, the union construction industry gathers in Washington, D.C. to honor the “best of the best” – the tripartite teams who achieved zero injuries on their industrial construction and maintenance projects in the previous calendar year.

Established in 2000 by the National Maintenance Agreements Policy Committee, Inc. (NMAPC), the Zero Injury Safety Awards® (ZISA®) is an annual recognition program celebrating those union contractors, labor representatives and owner-clients who work together in a tripartite fashion to create injury-free job sites.

We believe these phenomenal achievements – once thought to be impossible – are the direct result of the mutual cooperation, respect and willingness to collaborate that are found within the NMAPC and the union construction industry in general. The winners’ hard work, cooperation and dedication to the zero injury philosophy prove once again that union construction and maintenance are the safest and best options on the market.

ZISA® is recognized nationwide as union construction and maintenance’s premier award for industrial safety. It is a showcase for the best our industry has to offer, and reaffirms our commitment to sending our craft workers home safely each and every day. Below you will find information on the history of this prestigious awards program, delve deeper into the underlying zero injury philosophy and learn how owner-clients, contractors and labor representatives can become a part of this amazing safety success story.
