Safety Training Evaluation Process - STEP
What can we learn from more than a billion hours of work? How to achieve world-class safety. ABC analyzed the incident rates of members who participated in the 2017 Safety Training Evaluation Process and found that STEP can help the best-performing contractors achieve remarkable safety performance - more than six times safer than the industry average.* That's what we call world-class safety.

Our members can speak to the power of STEP and its impact on creating a culture of safety that believes every incident is preventable.
