Bailey-Harris has achieved PLATINUM level in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System

3/28/2024 – Bailey-Harris Construction recently received the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Platinum Level STEP Award for its outstanding safety performance. The award is based on safety factor controls that incorporate data from OSHA reports and necessitate companies to have in-depth safety programs. To qualify for the Platinum Level, companies must meet specific criteria, including 20 critical components, an incidence rate equal to or below the national BLS average, and submission of an OSHA Form 300A for the past three years. The top-performing members of ABC have incident rates nearly seven times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics construction industry average.

“At Bailey Harris Construction, safety is not just a preference, it is a way of life!” said Bailey Harris Corporate Safety Director Jeff Gibby. “It is integrated into the core of our project management and employee training, driving us to “surpass expectations” in everything we do! We are proud of our strong commitment to safety and have received recognition throughout our organization for our efforts. Our field team members work tirelessly to construct projects that have a positive impact on the community. Our aim is to continually improve our operations and establish a solid foundation of safety.

According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, STEP participants, regardless of company size or type of work, can reduce recordable incidents up to 85%, making the best-performing companies 688% safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Participant.

Of note is Bailey-Harris’ jump from Gold STEP level in 2022 to its current status of Platinum for 2023.
