Founded in 1989 as a safety benchmarking and improvement tool, STEP has evolved into a world-class safety management system that dramatically improves safety performance among participants, regardless of company size or type of work. Participating ABC member firms measure their safety processes and policies on 25 key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incident rates. Companies receive a rating of Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze or Participant based on their safety performance. STEP members prove that world-class safety is achievable with a company-wide commitment to safety as a core value.
ABC is an active member of the Construction Coalition for a Drug- and Alcohol-free Workplace, which provides companies and organizations with the resources they need to implement effective substance abuse policies and work toward eliminating substance abuse-related incidents on construction jobsites.

With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created OSHA to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.
