STEP Improves Performance


Read ABC’s 2022 Safety Performance Report to understand the impact of STEP participation on safety performance. Packed with infographics and practical takeaways, the report documents the dramatic impact of using proactive safety practices, making the best-performing companies 645% safer than the industry average.


We know you're committed to safety.
Get the recognition you deserve. 


Establishing a safe working environment requires every employer - large and small - and every worker to make safety and health a top priority. The entire workforce - from the CEO to the most recent hire - must recognize that worker safety and health is central to the mission and key to the profitability of the American company.

ABC's safety management system, STEP (Safety Training Evaluation Process), is a 35-point guide to starting, updating or auditing a company-wide safety program. Top-performing participants in the program achieved an 827% improvement in safety performance compared to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2019. In addition, companies that attained the highest level of STEP performance reduced TRIR by 88%. With our safety program, you can highlight your safety excellence to developers, owners, contractors and employees. 

"Safety performance isn't reflected in what you did. It's reflected in what you're doing."
