Robinson Construction Company announced it has achieved Diamond Level 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.

“We are proud to be recognized by ABC as a Diamond Level STEP Award recipient for 2021,” said Paul Findlay, president of Robinson Construction. “Our entire team is dedicated to a Zero Incidents culture, and this is reflected in our ABC National STEP Diamond Level status.”

Robinson Construction has participated in the STEP program for nearly 20 years, earning an award each year at the Gold Level and above. Diamond is the highest level achievable through the program.

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 jobsite incidents.

“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like Robinson Construction to have a safer and more productive jobsite,” 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 Robinson 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, and 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.

Did you know that lack of fall protection is one of the top OSHA-reported violations, especially in the construction industry?

A few of the ways that help to ensure safety while working is holding regular safety meetings and hanging safety signage in areas where accidents are likely to occur.

Superintendent Bruce Gibbar was recently recognized by a long-time Robinson customer as a “leader in safety.” A letter from the customer states:

“I am writing to thank you for your efforts in achieving three years without a contractor lost time accident on our [jobsite]. In May, thousands of contractor hours have been registered on our site without a lost time incident. The on-site team routinely demonstrates a clear understanding of, and commitment to safety. In many cases, that partnership has led to us improving safety performance together.

Our leadership team determined that a cornerstone of our successful partnership here has to do with the Leadership in Safety demonstrated by your on-site leader, Bruce Gibbar. His contributions to safety go beyond looking after his own crews, to our extended teams, as well as other contractors and visitors. He has been effective in meeting [our] reporting standards, root cause safety problem solving, and takes swift action where safety is concerned. It is truly a pleasure to work with a professional like Bruce.

Additionally, we congratulate and thank your entire organization for demonstrating the high level of commitment to keeping people safe, and to reaching this three year milestone on [our site]. We look forward to our continued, successful partnership in safety.”

Bruce was presented with the letter and a plaque by Robinson CEO Frank Robinson at the June Supervisor’s Meeting. Bruce was grateful that he was chosen to receive the award, but believes safety is a group effort. “This doesn’t just belong to me. We should really have 200 of these plaques because it’s a group effort and we all had a part in making this happen.”

Congratulations to Bruce and his entire team on this great accomplishment!
