3 ABC History Founded in 1950Founded in ,000 construction industry members22,000 construction industry members 70 chapters nationwide70 chapters nationwide ABC’s Vision: Based on the merit shop philosophy, Associated Builders and Contractors helps Members develop people, win work and deliver that work Safely, Ethically and Profitably for the betterment of the communities in which they work. 3

4 STEP History –Created in 1989 by the ABC National Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Committee to help recognize ABC member companies with exceptional safety records. –Six levels of achievement in the STEP program: Participant, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum & Diamond. –Provides contractors with a consistent, effective tool to evaluate safety training programs by using 20 standard “Key Components” of safety. Each key component focuses on specific safety and training areas essential to a successful, effective safety training program. 4

5 So what, exactly, is STEP? Pre-qualification tool for owners/usersPre-qualification tool for owners/users Performance evaluator for insurersPerformance evaluator for insurers Internal company tool for:Internal company tool for: –Recognition –Evaluation / Benchmarking –Data-gathering –IMPROVEMENT STEP provides contractors with the means to determine how they can send EVERY worker home safely EVERY night. 5

6 The Benefits of STEP –Helps contractors evaluate their safety training programs and identify areas of improvement. –Helps contractors reduce workers’ compensation costs by building stronger, more effective safety systems & processes. –Provides recognition for contractors who consistently provide a safe work environment not only to employees, but to customers as well. –Sets companies apart from their competition. –Saves LIVES and MONEY! 6

7 How STEP works OSHA Form 300A data – source of ½ of all STEP application infoOSHA Form 300A data – source of ½ of all STEP application info Company informationCompany information –Man-hours worked –Type of work done –Location of work –NAICS code EMR & Incidence RateEMR & Incidence Rate 20 Key Components Self-Evaluation20 Key Components Self-Evaluation 7

8 STEP vs. BLS Fatality Rates,

9 STEP vs. BLS TRIR,

10 STEP vs. BLS DART,

11 STEP vs. Industry Average EMR,

12 12 STEP Savings through Lower EMR

13 Fatality, TRIR & DART Trends: What do they mean? –Fewer fatalities=higher morale –Lower Total Recordable Incidence Rate (TRIR)=higher employee productivity –Lower Days Away, Restricted or Transferred Rate (DART)=fewer days without employees & lower workers’ comp rates STEP participants show lower rates, increasing their productivity and profitability 13

14 2013 STEP Results (2,044 ABC Contractor Members) 14

15 2013 STEP Results –61% of STEP applicants have Total Recordable Incidence Rates (TRIRs) at or below BLS NAICS code averages –28% have lagging indicator performance (TRIR, EMR) that significantly outperforms (>25% below) peers 15

16 Strengthening STEP: 2014 and Beyond ALL STEP participants MUST sign the Drug- and Alcohol-Free Workplace Pledge (www.drugfreeconstruction.org)ALL STEP participants MUST sign the Drug- and Alcohol-Free Workplace Pledge (www.drugfreeconstruction.org)www.drugfreeconstruction.org New leading indicator questions added to help track use among ABC members & move industry towards using leading AND lagging indicators as performance metricsNew leading indicator questions added to help track use among ABC members & move industry towards using leading AND lagging indicators as performance metrics 16

24 How the 5-year TRIR average helps small companies XYZ Company (19 employees; NAICS ) needs 3-year IR of 1.6 to qualify for STEP DiamondXYZ Company (19 employees; NAICS ) needs 3-year IR of 1.6 to qualify for STEP Diamond 3-year avg.=2.4—DNQ Diamond3-year avg.=2.4—DNQ Diamond 5-year avg.=1.5—STEP Diamond5-year avg.=1.5—STEP Diamond YearIncidence Rate

25 How Companies Use STEP -Self-evaluation tool—strengthening their safety & training program using the 20 Key Components “roadmap” -Long-term data comparison—track company’s historical performance against itself -Benchmark performance versus: -Peers -Industry/BLS averages -Similar companies (type of work, man hours worked) 25

26 How Companies Use STEP Recognition –Pre-bid qualifications/bid packages STEP recognized among many owners/users as safety indicator –Promoting the company Ads, among peers, etc. Benchmark for safety performance –Advertising STEP logo on hard hats, vehicles, etc. –Negotiating with insurance carriers Proven safety performance –Incentive to keep improving Until we reach 0 injuries, we can always do better! 26

27 Why STEP Matters Provides ABC members and non-members with the tools and resources to achieve world-class safety performance The world-class standard for health, safety and environment in the construction industry embodies leadership commitment to not only developing a safety culture where each person is accountable for the safety and well-being of all, but providing the means and methods for each employee to leave work in the same—or better—condition than which they arrived. 27
