ESI Group USA has achieved Silver in the Associated Builders and Contractor’s STEP safety management system. Founded in 1989, STEP participation demonstrates safety leadership and a cultural commitment to safety performance.
STEP applicants measure their safety processes and policies on 24 key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents.
ESI excelled in the categories for Employer Policy, Responsibility for Safety, Supervisory Meetings, and Recordkeeping to name a few.
Safety Director, Kyle Timmer of ESI states, “ESI takes job site safety seriously and appreciates ABC acknowledging these efforts. We continue to review our safety program, educate our employees and subcontractors on methods to ensure job site safety for continued success in this area.”
According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, applying STEP processes dramatically improves safety performance among participants regardless of company size or type of work, and can reduce recordable incidents up to 85%, making the best performing companies 680% safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Participant.
