Woburn, MA Associated Builders and Contractors of Massachusetts (ABC), the leading voice for the merit shop construction industry, and the Gould Construction Institute (GCI), ABC’s training affiliate, congratulate Callahan Construction Managers for being named a Gold Safety, Training, and Evaluation Process (S.T.E.P.) award recipient at the 13th Annual ABC/GCI Safety & Education Dinner held May 18 at Montvale Plaza in Stoneham.
The S.T.E.P. Awards is ABC/GCI’s premier annual event. “A contractor’s most valuable resource is their workers. There is nothing more important than jobsite safety,” said GCI president Barbara Lagergren. “This year’s award recipients deserve each and every accolade they received by continuing to raise the standards of safety, training, and education throughout the construction industry.”
S.T.E.P. Awards are presented annually to ABC member companies with exceptional safety records and this year’s applicant pool was competitive with a record 60 companies recognized as having an outstanding commitment to jobsite safety. Applicants are evaluated on a number of statistical factors such as incident rates, lost time and OSHA recordable events, combined with a safety audit consisting of twenty key components.
This year, Callahan took home the Gold S.T.E.P Award in recognition of its exceptional commitment to ensuring a safe work environment for their entire workforce.
“We are honored to be recognized by ABC MA for the 10th consecutive year as a Gold S.T.E.P Award winner,” said Patrick Callahan, president of Callahan. “This recognition further reinforces our unwavering commitment to worksite safety through consistent training, education and evaluation.”
