iiCON Construction Colorado, LLC Achieves World-Class Safety Standards through Diamond ABC STEP Program
Colorado Springs, Colorado — iiCON Construction announced it has achieved Diamond in Associated Builders and Contractor’s STEP Safety Management System, meaning the company is 655% safer than the industry average. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP has evolved into a world-class safety program that dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants.
iiCON Construction is committed to continually raising the bar when it comes to safety performance and the total human health of their employees. iiCON was awarded STEP Gold in 2019 and STEP Platinum in 2020.
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 job site incidents. iiCON is dedicated to a top-down, bottom-up approach to safety, which is reflected in our STEP diamond status.
“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like iiCON Construction to have a safer and more productive job site,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment, and workforce development. “Committing to total human health is essential to ensure both the physical and mental health and safety of our workforce, and I commend iiCON Construction for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raising 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 85%, 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.
