ABC lays out steps for reducing safety incidents by 85%

Companies that take proactive measures to prevent jobsite safety breaches can reduce their number of incidents by 85%, according to a new Associated Builders and Contractors study.

The ABC 2019 Safety Performance Report is based on data from member contractors that have deployed the association’s Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP). Industry safety performance is often measured using lagging indicators such as the total recordable incidents rate (TRIR); days away, restricted or transferred (DART) rate regarding an injured employee’s time away from work; and experience modification rate (EMR), which measures a company’s risk compared to the average. The goal of this study was to identify the impact that eight leading indicators and other best practices can have on these rates.
