Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) has recognized Stellar with a 2022 National Safety Excellence Award.

The Jacksonville-based fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services, was recognized for the third consecutive year with a Pinnacle award, the highest of three categories, placing Stellar among a select group of ABC contractor members whose achievements in the field of construction safety are considered exceptional.

Despite working in high-risk categories such as roofing and welding, Stellar’s safety record is notably better than the industry average in at least three major safety benchmarks:

  • Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)
  • Experience Modification Rate (EMR)
  • Days Away Restricted Transfer Rate (DART)

Historically, Stellar’s safety rates are less than half that of other firms in the industry.

The 2022 National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold status in ABC’s Safety, Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) Safety Management System in 2022. Awards are based on data submitted via the STEP applications, essay questions and interviews with company executives about their corporate safety culture.

The standard for developing world-class safety management systems in construction, STEP is designed to help both large and small contractors evaluate every aspect of their corporate safety and health programs as well as identify opportunities for improvement.
