The STEP (Safety Training and Evaluation Process) Awards were designed for contractors by contractors to audit your existing safety practices and elevate them to the next step. The ABC STEP Awards is national program, which analyzes contractors on their safety processes and policies.

The achievement of different levels of STEP (e.g. Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze) showcases your dedication to safety to clients and fellow contractors.

ABC Eastern Pa. Chapter strongly encourages all contractor members to commit their companies to world-class safety. No matter where you are in your safety development, participation in STEP is essential to you and your employees.


The ABC Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter has partnered with area OSHA offices in Allentown, Philadelphia, and Wilkes-Barre and the Pennsylvania OSHA Consultation Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania to support our members as they improve their safety practices. Our mutual goal is to ensure ABC members are committed to provide a safe and healthful work environment for their employees working in Pennsylvania and beyond.

Join many fellow ABC members to reduce TRIR, improve STEP Award performance, and increase participation in OSHA campaigns (e.g. Focus Four, National Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, Safe + Sound Event, etc.)
