The program was developed and written by contractors, for contractors. It provides your company with the following benefits:
  • Structured approach to examine and further develop your company’s safety and loss prevention program.
  • Clear, legitimate, and objective methods to measure your company’s safety program improvements.
The best part of STEP is that it helps you to enhance your company’s safety program – and it’s FREE!
