STEP Program


Whether your company is beginning its safety journey or working towards world-class performance, the Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) will provide you with the necessary tools to meet your safety goals.

Participating in STEP provides you with an opportunity to measure your safety program's progress through the 20 Key Components Self-Evaluation, identify areas of improvement, and benchmark your performance with fellow ABC members.

Benefits of Participating in STEP:

  • Gives an organized approach to analyze and further develop our company's safety and loss prevention program 
  • Offers an objective method to measure your company's safety program improvements from year to year. 
  • Enables you to benchmark your firm's safety record with similar companies and industry averages. 
  • Provides your company with safety performance recognition that can be used as an important business development tool with potential clients. 
  • Helps reduce your company's incidence rates and days away, restricted or transferred (DART) rates. 
  • Helps lower your company's Experience Modification Rate (EMR of "mod factor"), which can lower annual worker's compensation insurance rates
