On the Set: MCAA Video Crews

This past September, production crews for the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) spent two days at Baker Group filming its newest safety video on the silica dust standard. And it’s not the first time that directors and videographers have converged here: Baker Group has been the set for nearly a dozen safety training videos since 2008.

“MCAA produces up to three 10- to 15-minute safety videos a year. These are very high quality productions,” says Tracy Haus, Baker Group’s Safety Director who also serves on MCAA’s safety board.

“Once we have MCAA’s script for a video, it takes about a week to coordinate all the necessary personnel, facilities, job sites and everything else that’s needed,” he says.

Haus adds that it’s worth the effort: “We feel strongly about safety training. Because Baker Group has the right facilities and the right people to support these productions, we’re happy to make them available to MCAA.”  

Other MCAA safety training videos filmed at Baker Group have included NFPA-70E (arc flash), working in confined spaces, welding, and an orientation video for Mechanical Contractors Association of Iowa (MCAI).
