ABC's Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) is a safety benchmarking and improvement tool that dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants regardless of company size or type of work.
Why participate? Every ABC member wants to send its workers home safely every night. Take the first step towards achieving world class safety by participating in STEP, whether you are beginning your safety journey or continuing to strengthen your performance. Getting started with STEP is free and can help you lower your workers compensation insurance rates.
Who should participate? Commercial and industrial contractors who perform work in the construction of buildings (NAICS code 236), heavy and civil engineering construction (237) and specialty trade contractors (238) who want to make a commitment to achieving world-class safety performance.
How does STEP work? Participating companies score their level of achievement for each component on a weighted point scale and document their incident rates (TRIR and EMR). Companies receive recognition level of Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze or Participant based on this date.
