ABC Honors Contractors Leading the Industry in Safety Performance

LONG BEACH, CA — Associated Builders and Contractors announces the winners of the 2018 National Safety Excellence Awards during the 29th annual Excellence in Construction Awards at ABC Convention 2019 in Long Beach, California. A total of 42 ABC member companies were recognized for their safety performance.
The National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2018. During the selection process, contractors were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations and video interviews.
“Associated Builders and Contractors is proud to honor industry leaders who have created world-class safety processes and a safety culture where every employee understands that the wellbeing of those around them is everyone’s responsibility,” said 2019 ABC National Chair Tony Rader, Telecom Vice President of National Roofing Partners, Coppell, Texas.
The National Safety Excellence Awards are presented in three major North American Industry Classification System code categories: NAICS 236 – Construction of Buildings; NAICS 237 – Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction; and NAICS 238 – Specialty Trade Contractors. 
STEP is the standard for developing world-class safety management systems in construction. STEP is designed to help both large and small contractors evaluate every aspect of their corporate safety and health programs and identify opportunities for improvement. According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, the average STEP Diamond company is more than six times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ average for the entire industry based on their total recordable incident rate.
