The Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of the Carolinas yesterday honored over 100 members for their dedication and commitment to excellence in safety.  North Carolina Commissioner of Labor, Cherie Berry and South Carolina Director of Labor Licensing and Regulation, Emily Farr addressed the ABC membership and presented over 100 Safety Training Evaluation Program (STEP) awards.  The awards were presented at the ABC annual Safety and HR conference in Concord, NC.

"ABC's motto is There is NO competition in Safety," said Doug Carlson, President and CEO of the ABC Carolinas. "Contractors big and small come together to encourage both their clients and their competitors to improve their safety programs so that everyone goes home at the end of each workday."

Established in 1989, STEP was developed and written by contractors for contractors. Participating ABC member firms measure their safety processes and policies on 20 key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing and enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incident rates.  STEP participants are 150% safer then the Bureau of Labor Statistics average.   Platinum STEP level companies are 330% safer and Diamond STEP level companies are 770% safer.  For more information on the STEP program click here.
