NIA believes that life safety is paramount and works to provide opportunities for members to improve their companies’ safety programs. NIA’s Theodore H. Brodie Distinguished Safety Award Program is the association’s highest industry honor and the only national award for outstanding performance in the mechanical insulation industry. Open only to NIA members, all applicant companies receive an individualized and detailed Safety Training Analysis Results (STAR) Report, which is based on application responses and is written by NIA’s General Counsel and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) expert. For more information on the award program and NIA’s commitment to safety, please visit our Safety Award page.
NIA is proud of the members it represents and promotes members’ products and services through its online member directory and the annual Buyer’s Guide: Insulation Products and Providers, which is distributed to more than 10,000 end users of insulation products and services. Promoting members’ products is a priority for NIA when advocating for the inclusion of insulation language in legislation on Capitol Hill, or working with other influential organizations such as the Department of Energy, General Services Administration, state energy offices, and other groups that support energy-efficiency measures. To learn more about benefits of membership, please review our membership brochure.
