Safety Awards


Safety Awards


There are multiple safety award programs available to our members on both chapter and national levels.

ABC NATIONAL STEP SAFETY AWARDS   Established in 1989, the Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) serves as a valuable tool for ABC members to consistently build upon their safety training programs and gain recognition for their outstanding efforts. Applications are submitted online to ABC National to compete for the STEP awards. The 2019 application due date is July 19, 2019. ABC Mississippi member recognition occurs at ABC Mississippi's annual Safety Awards Luncheon each fall. Click here to learn more and apply online.

ABC MISSISSIPPI CHAPTER SAFETY AWARDS   The Chapter Safety Awards program is designed to recognize those ABC Mississippi member companies that promote safety awareness. The program is designed as an excellent template to measure safety effectiveness and we encourage all members to participate. ABC Mississippi members submit applications and documentation to be judged to receive various levels of awards in safety. The entries are carefully judged against specific safety criteria by the ABC Mississippi Safety Committee. Mississippi Chapter Awards are recognized at the Gold, Silver, and Bronze level. Each year, the recipients of these awards are recognized at an annual Safety Awards Luncheon held in their honor. 

ABC MISSISSIPPI SAFETY PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR   Annually, ABC Mississippi company owners submit applications entering their individual safety professional to compete for the ABC Mississippi Safety Professional of the Year Award. This award is open to any individual with direct responsibility for the safety, health, and compliance for their organization, and who has shown exemplary achievement, performance, and commitment towards the safety and well-being, safety culture, and fellow employees of his/her organization. In addition, this person should also be assigned to ABC Mississippi as a routine daily assignment with their primary job function being the Safety Professional of the company and be employed by a member of ABC Mississippi. This prestigious award began in 2011 and has become one of the highlights of the ABC Mississippi Chapter Safety Awards Luncheon. 

ABC MISSISSIPPI WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT AWARD   Annually, ABC Mississippi recognizes companies that develop and implement a comprehensive Workforce Development Program and provide continued effort to bridge the gap between education and the construction industry. Winner of this award is announced at the annual Merit Awards Dinner each year.
