Atlanta, Georgia – Yates Construction was honored to be a Platinum Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) Award recipient at the Associated Builders and Contractors of Georgia’s 2016 Excellence In Construction and Safety Awards Gala on July 20th, 2016. The association’s safety awards are presented annually to Georgia contractors who have had low rates of on-the-job injuries and who have demonstrated the highest commitment to safety and safety training. ABC’s Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) awards recognize member companies who employ effective safety practices on their jobsites, based on 20 key elements of contractor safety programs such as management commitment, pre-planning for safety on jobsites, safety training and resources committed to safety. The STEP process, which was developed and written by contractors for contractors, is a tool designed to objectively evaluate safety programs, policies, procedures, and training.
