Association names winners of construction safety awards
The safest contractors in West Michigan were revealed this week.
During an event at Watermark Country Club, the Associated Builders and Contractors Western Michigan Chapter, or ABC/WMC, recognized 35 members with ABC Safety Training and Evaluation Process, or STEP, awards.
There are four STEP Award designations based on a variety of qualifications: diamond, platinum, gold and silver.
Seven companies earned the diamond-level STEP Award, which is the highest-level designation: Brigade Fire Protection, CD Barnes Construction, CSM Group, Elzinga & Volkers, Esper Electric, GHD and Thermal Tec.
Eight companies earned the platinum STEP Award, 10 companies earned the gold STEP Award and 10 companies earned the silver STEP Award.
“STEP is a process, not an event,” said Norm Brady, president and CEO, ABC/WMC. “Statistics show that members who use STEP have significantly better safety results than those who do not participate.”
