Forrester Construction Company is proud to announce that the firm has recently received its tenth Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Platinum Level STEP Safety Award. Through these awards, ABC recognizes companies who exhibit a continued commitment to jobsite safety and whose safety performance and programs are judged to be exemplary by the ABC National Environment, Health & Safety Committee. To earn Platinum level distinction, Forrester demonstrated a total reportable incident rate at least 25% below the firm’s NAICS code industry average, maintaining a low Experience Modification Rating, having zero reportable incidences and achieving a high score on ABC’s 20 Key Safety Components rating system.
Director of Safety John Shumar attributes Forrester’s reputation for being an industry leader in site safety to the company’s Total Safety Culture and People-Based Safety programs. “At Forrester, safety isn’t the responsibility of any single person or committee. Every Team Member plays an important role, which is why receiving our tenth Platinum STEP Safety Award is so meaningful. It is recognition of a long term, sustained commitment to safety by every member of our team,” says Shumar.
