Recognizing Safety Performance

Chapter Safety Awards

The Chapter Safety Awards recognize companies for their meritorious safety performance in a given year. The award winners are determined using safety factor calculations that incorporate data from Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) reports. Awards are presented by company size (determined by man hours worked during the reporting year) in three classifications.

STEP Awards

ABC's national Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) program provides an organized method for analyzing and measuring the effectiveness of a company's safety program. Participants are rated on 20 safety program components, including management commitment to safety, employee participation, use of personal protective equipment, and record keeping. Their total rating determines their eligibility for various award levels: silver, gold, platinum, and diamond--the highest honor.
