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:

Organized approach for analyzing and developing safety and loss prevention programs

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

Recognition for ABC members at both National and Chapter level. With various recognition events held throughout the year. STEP can also lead into National Safety Excellence Awards and Accredited Quality Contractor recognition.

To qualify for STEP Platinum, an ABC member company must:

  • Have a total recordable incident rate at least 25% below their NAICS code industry average in the past year;
  • Maintain an Experience Modification Rate (EMR, or "Mod Factor") of 0.800 (0.900 for companies with less than 100 employees);
