Keystone Chapter, Associated Builders & Contractors Inc. (ABC), awarded 62 member companies for their commitment to safety at the annual Safety Awards, held recently, at the Yorktowne Hotel, York, PA.

ABC’s Safety Training & Evaluation Process (STEP) program recognizes the efforts of ABC members that strive to achieve effective safety practices at their firms and provides contractors with a tool to objectively evaluate their safety programs, policies, procedures and training.

Awards are based on data submitted via application and are based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) that replaced the Standard Industrial Classification System (SIC) and OSHA recordables.

Awards range from bronze to platinum, with platinum being the highest level achievable. Among the many stringent guidelines to qualify for platinum status, a company has to:

• receive STEP Gold two consecutive years;

• submit an OSHA summary 300 log summarizing OSHA recordables;

• submit a statement from their insurance company that supports the STEP self-evaluation score; and

• have no fatalities or catastrophic incidents in the past three years, which results in OSHA citations.

Platinum membership provides a special certificate of recognition, automatic application for the ABC National Safety Excellence Award and participation in National ABC’s promotional campaign.
