Platinum Award for Safety Program

We are proud to announce Bertolet Construction Corporation received the Associated Builders & Contractors' (ABC) Platinum Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) Award for our continued commitment to job safety and for partnering with OSHA to maintain our commitment to high safety standards. This year the highest level of awards was Platinum level. Of all participants, only five companies in total achieved the Platinum Award.

ABC’s Safety Training Evaluation Process is a safety bench-marking and improvement tool that dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants regardless of company size or type of work, and it is the only such program in the country that provides companies a structured approach to benchmark and improve their safety efforts.

Participating companies score their level of achievement for each component on a weighted point scale and document their incident rates (TRIR and EMR). Companies receive a recognition level of Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze or Participant based on this data.
