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.”
