Faith Technologies Earns National Safety Award from Associated Builders and Contractors
Menasha, Wis. (April 30, 2020) – Faith Technologies, an energy expert and leading electrical planning, engineering, design and installation contractor, has been named a National Safety Excellence Award winner by Associated Builders and Contractors. The award will be presented at the 30th annual Excellence in Construction® Awards during the ABC Convention 2020 in Nashville, Tennessee, on Aug. 18.
All Faith employees are committed to an uncompromised focus on keeping people safe, which has led the company to an experience modification rate (EMR) of 0.56, considerably lower than the industry average of 1.00.
“Our team takes great pride in our commitment to safety and how it fits into our overall wellness initiative,” said Mike Jansen, CEO of Faith Technologies. “For us, it’s not just about preventing injuries on the job site, but about creating the highest quality of life for our team members. ”
The National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2019. During the selection process, contractors were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations, and video interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Safety and Health Committee.
“Associated Builders and Contractors is proud to recognize Faith Technologies for consistently raising the standards of safety in the construction industry,” said 2020 ABC National Chair Tim Keating, owner and president of R.C. Stevens Construction Co., Winter Garden, Florida. “Their dedication to world-class safety performance and commitment to total human health is the gold standard of the merit shop construction industry.”
STEP, the standard for developing world-class safety management systems in construction, is designed to help both large and small contractors evaluate every aspect of their corporate safety and health programs and identify opportunities for improvement. According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, the average STEP Diamond company is more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ average for the entire industry based on their total recordable incident rate.
