STEP Safety Management System

The foundation for members who excel in safety.

STEP was developed by contractors, for contractors, and is designed to provide you with an organized approach to analyze and further develop your safety program.

This self-audit program provides an objective method to measure your safety program and make continuous improvements.

Members of ABC of Iowa that receive award status in STEP are among the safest construction companies in the nation - up to 688% safer!

 There is no charge for this service, and your responses are strictly confidential. 

Participating companies score their level of achievement for each component on a weighted point scale and document their incident rates (TRIR and EMR).


  • Many members are promoting their STEP status on social media and touting their membership in the bid process.
  • Owners of projects, along with the General Contractors they select to run their projects, appreciate the safety our Members can bring to their plan for success.
  • It's important to note that insurance/risk companies are analyzing what you are doing to keep your employees safe in their work environments.

Companies receive a recognition level of Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze or Participant based on data supplied.
