ABC Delaware has recognized EDiS Company with the Diamond Level STEP (Safety Training and Evaluation Process) Award for 2023!

STEP is a world-class safety management system that dramatically improves safety performance among participants regardless of company size or type of work. Participating ABC member firms measure their safety processes and policies on 25 key components through a detailed questionnaire.

Participating companies score their level of achievement for each component on a weighted point scale and document their incident rates. Companies receive a recognition level of Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze or Participant based on this data. The highest level, Diamond, represents the lowest rate of total recordable incidents possible, 655 percent safer than the industry average. This recognition reflects the time and dedication EDiS Company has poured into its safety program for more than a decade.

Director of Safety and Health Jim Ruggiero has been at the forefront of safety at EDiS for more than a decade. Jim is a member of the Safety and Wellness Committee of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Delaware Chapter, he’s also Chairman of the Training and Education Committee of the Delaware Contractors Association (DCA). Jim works with teams of professionals to discuss and evaluate industry best practices, educational needs, and helps develop training programs to facilitate the needs of contractors based in Delaware.

“I’m excited for EDiS Company to be receiving this award. I’m proud to be working for a company where the ownership is involved so closely with the Safety & Health program. The safety and well-being of our clients, contractors, and members of the public are monitored and managed by our teams every single day. This award is attainable because of them.” – Director of Safety & Health Jim Ruggiero
