Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Releases 2018 Safety Performance Report
The ABC report is created from data submitted by participants in the 2017 Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) which uses OSHA 300A figures and self-assessment of leading indicator safe practices. That data is processed with specific U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) information to produce the report which substantiates the success of commitment, and the deployment of leading core indicators.
The ABC STEP program promotes better safety and risk management by analysis, best practices, and benchmarking year after year. Sweetwater has been an avid STEP participant for 28 years and has attained Diamond Level status. Our deep-rooted culture of safety is anchored with a dedicated Environment, Health & Safety department, layers of safety and risk management oversite, collaboration with our insurance company, and buy-in from our employees and subcontractors.
ABC’s report shows that STEP Diamond contractors are 670% safer than the BLS average. To review this report, click here. For more on Sweetwater’s program, visit our Safety page.
