Associated Builders and Contractors of Massachusetts (ABC), the leading voice for the merit shop construction industry, and the Gould Construction Institute (GCI), ABC’s training affiliate, congratulate R.H. White Construction Co., Inc. for recently being named a Gold Safety, Training, and Evaluation Process (S.T.E.P.) award recipient at the 12th Annual GCI Safety & Education Dinner held recently.
The S.T.E.P. Awards is ABC/GCI’s premier event of the year. “A contractor’s most valuable resource is their workers. There is nothing more important than jobsite safety,” said Barbara Lagergren, President of the Gould Construction Institute. “Tonight’s award recipients deserve each and every accolade they received by continuing to raise the standards of safety, training, and education throughout the construction industry.”
S.T.E.P. Awards are presented annually to ABC Member companies with exceptional safety records, and this year’s applicant pool was fiercely competitive. Applicants are critiqued on a number of statistical factors such as incident rates, lost time and OSHA recordable incidents combined with a safety audit consisting of twenty key components.
This year, R.H. White Construction Co., Inc. took home the Gold S.T.E.P Award in recognition of its outstanding commitment to ensuring a safe work environment for their entire workforce.
