With the best practices outlined in the 2021 Safety Performance Report from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), construction companies can drastically improve their safety performance.
The 2021 Safety Performance Report is an annual assessment that furthers the construction industry’s understanding of how to achieve world-class safety. The companies highlighted in the report deploy ABC’s STEP Safety Management System. The report details the drastic impact of using proactive safety practices to reduce recordable incidents by up to 85%, making the best-performing companies more than six times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.
“Leading from a posture of safety and committing to a culture of safety create the conditions for all in the construction industry to complete their work without incident and go home safe and healthy every day,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development. “ABC’s Safety Performance Report creates a roadmap through empirical evidence to keep workers safe on the job, regardless of the size of the company or type of work. Implementing best practices built on the foundations of leading indicators, substance abuse programs, new hire safety orientation, toolbox talks and top management engagement creates a culture that embraces world-class safety.”
