Wilmington, Delaware, May 4, 2022 — Assurance Media today announced it has achieved Platinum Level in Associated Builders and Contractor’s STEP Safety Management System. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP has evolved into a world-class safety program that dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants, with top-performing Diamond members achieving incident rates 645% safer than the industry average.

STEP participants measure their safety processes and policies on key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents. Assurance Media’s proactive approach to safety includes education, training, jobsite inspections, and more. These proactive steps contribute directly to our team achieving no recordable incidents in 2021.

Assurance Media’s Principal, Mark Stellini reviews the company values with the team every chance he gets. Among the company’s five values is #4, “Committed to Safety”.  Assurance Media’s commitment to safety is a company investment to do everything in its power to ensure that each employee goes home to their family safely every night.

“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like Assurance Media to have safer and more productive jobsites,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development. “Committing to total human health is essential to ensure the physical and mental health and safety of our workforce, and I commend Assurance Media for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raise the bar of safety performance.”

According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, STEP participants, regardless of company size or type of work, can reduce recordable incidents up to 84%, making the best performing companies more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Participant.
