Westmoreland Electric STEP Safety Awards

The phrase STEP stands for Safety Training and Evaluation Process.  This is an evaluation process developed by the Associated Builders and Contractors to provide contractors with an organized approach for analyzing and developing safety and loss prevention programs.

The Key Component system in the STEP process forms a 20 point guide to starting, updating or auditing a company-wide safety program.  It incorporates OSHA required safety data with self-assessment requirements to give a full, wide ranging report on the effectiveness of a company's Safety Program.  The 2011 and 2012 STEP data shows that its participants beat the BLS national averages in a number of areas, leading to benefits both when competing for business and when negotiating insurance rate

All companies claim that safety is a priority, but with STEP we can prove it!

In addition to the STEP awards outlined above, we have also been evaluated by some of the top General Contractors in the area with regards to our safe practices on their jobsite.  There are two links to letters written to us regarding our safety performance on the job.

The first letter was written by Peter Jensen from Walsh Construction, the full time safety director on our nearly $11 million Providence Point project.  The second letter was written by our insurance carrier at the time, Ohio Casualty from an on-site inspection they performed on one of our projects.  As you can see, we do believe in safety and put our money into safe work practices and procedures!
