Oct 15, 2012
COLUMBIA, SC - October 15, 2012 - MV Commercial Construction has been
recognized as a Diamond Award recipient for 2012 by the Associated
Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) as part of its Safety Training
Evaluation Process (STEP). STEP provides ABC member companies with the
opportunity to measure safety program progress, indentify ways in which
safety on jobsites can be improved and benchmark safety performance with
Diamond recognition is the highest possible recognition level awarded by ABC for its members. Qualifying STEP participants must demonstrate safety excellence through meeting stringent guidelines for safety by demonstrating below average Jobsite Incidence Rates, Workers Compensation Loss Rates and Experience Modification Rates (EMRs). The end goal is creating jobsites with zero-incidents, thereby creating a safe working environment for all workers in an industry where jobsite hazards are typically all too common.
“We are excited to receive the Diamond Award, ABC’s highest STEP recognition level. This award is recognition for all of the planning, hard work and commitment to safety that is practiced every day by our Partners, Associates, Subcontractors and Vendors,” said Brooks Williams, Senior Project Manager/Safety Co-ordinator. “Miller-Valentine will continue to work as a leader in construction jobsite safety with the goal of zero incidents.”
MV Commercial Construction was formally recognized as a Diamond Award recipient by ABC at their Annual Safety Conference last week in Charlotte, NC.
