Carter Concrete Structures was recently recognized by the Associated Builders and Contractors of Georgia, Inc. (ABC) for it’s Safety Training and Evaluation Processes (STEP) and received a 2010 Gold STEP Award.
The STEP program provides members with an organized approach to analyzing and further developing their safety and loss prevention program. It gives companies a valid, objective method with which to measure safety program improvements. Awards are based on approximately 20 key elements of contractor safety programs such as commitment of company management, responsibilities of safety personnel, and budget.
The ABC presented its 2010 Safety Awards to 52 honorees in the field of construction at its annual luncheon held May 17th. The association’s National STEP Awards are given yearly to Georgia contractors who have achieved the lowest rate of on-the-job accidents in the state, and have demonstrated the highest commitment to safety.
ABC heightened requirements for achieving various STEP award levels in 2010. To achieve Gold, a company must have had an incidence rate equal to or less than 1 1/2 times the NAICS average.
