Create Safer Jobs

STEP Safety is a top priority for ABC of North Florida. Along with our Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) Awards, we support our member companies’ safety programs through timely safety training.

We know you are committed to safety so get the recognition your company deserves with STEP. Establishing a safe working environment requires every employer, large and small, and every worker to make safety and health a top priority. The entire work force, from the CEO to the most recent hire, must recognize that worker safety and health is central to the mission and key to the profitability of the American company.

Step and the 20 Key Components of a world-class Safety Program can be used to guide companies on their journey towards safety excellence. The online application features include instantaneous STEP level notification and auto-save functionality so that members can save their work and complete the application at a later date.

STEP Safety Awards

ABC National's Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) program provides an organized method for analyzing and measuring the effectiveness of a company's safety program. Participants are rated on 20 safety program components, including management commitment to safety, employee participation, use of personal protective equipment, and record keeping. Their total rating determines their eligibility for various award levels: bronze, silver, gold, platinum, and diamond--the highest honor.
