Century Contractors Recognized for Safety Excellence Earning 2023 Diamond Distinction through Diamond ABC STEP Program

October 3, 2023

Matthews, NC, October 3, 2023 Century Contractors is pleased to announce the company’s continued success in the Associated Builders and ContractorsSTEP Safety Management System program. For 2023, the company has earned a Diamond-level distinction, which is the highest possible rating and an accomplishment requiring zero injuries for the entire calendar year.

For more than three decades, STEP has guided construction industry participants to dramatically advance safety performance through the implementation or enhancement of key safety programs. Top-performing firms can achieve incident rates nearly seven times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics construction industry average, following the proven STEP framework.

Greg Sizemore, ABC Vice President of Health, Safety, Environment and Workforce Development highlighted how Century Contractors’ proactive approach attributed to reaching this lofty safety recognition, “STEP measures performance on key components, strengthens and expands best practices and builds safety culture. Our people are our greatest asset, and I commend Century for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raise the bar of safety performance.”

Lisa Ingram, Corporate Safety Manager at Century Contractors went on to explain how STEP ideal tie in seamlessly to the company’s safety philosophy, “Our vision is for every person, on every project, to go home as good or better than they were when they started work that day. This requires top-to-bottom collaboration from leadership to the tradespeople performing on site.”
