Brindley Construction has achieved a Platinum rating in Associated Builders and Contractor’s (ABC) STEP Safety Management System. This milestone signifies that the company is 242% safer than the industry average.
Founded more than three decades ago, the STEP Program has evolved into a world-class safety program that dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants.
“Clients can rest assured that we remain committed to providing a safe workplace. A safety-first approach creates security for our families, co-workers, and our clients. Brindley Construction has been participating in the ABC STEP Program since 2015 and we plan to continue participating for many years to come,” says Ronnie Brindley, President.
STEP participants measure their safety processes and policies on key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents.
“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like Brindley Construction to have a safer and more productive job site,” says Greg Sizemore, ABC Vice President of Health, Safety, Environment, and Workforce Development. “Committing to total human health is essential to ensure both the physical and mental health and safety of our workforce, and I commend Brindley Construction for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raising the bar of safety performance.”
According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, STEP participants—regardless of company size or type of work—are more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond—the highest—to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Participant. To learn more about the STEP program, visit abcstep.org.
