Alpine Painting is proud of our commitment to Safety. This year Alpine has been awarded for our extensive safety training program by being presented with the 2012 ABC Platinum STEP Award.

Established in 1989 by the ABC National Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Committee, the Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) program was developed and written by contractors, for contractors.

Program Benefits:

The Key Component system forms a 20 point guide to starting, updating or auditing a company-wide safety program

Incorporates both OSHA required safety data with self-assessment requirements to give a full, wide ranging report on the entire nature of a company’s Safety Program
