EnviroVantage Wins National Award


Need dateline – EnviroVantage, an environmental specialty contractor, has been awarded the highly prestigious 2016 STEP Safety Award, Gold Level, from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Massachusetts.

The company previously received a STEP award for its safety record in Connecticut.

“Jobsite safety is our A-No. 1 goal,” says company owner Scott Knightly. “There is nothing more valuable that we have than the health and well-being of our employees.”

STEP is an acronym for Safety, Training, Evaluation, and Process and includes a 20-point guide for company safety. The program was developed and written by contractors, for contractors. The award rewards construction companies that have shown the utmost care in analyzing and developing safety and loss prevention programs.

EnviroVantage Safety Officer Greg Mackey was especially proud of the award. “Gold is the standard-bearer, and to win this recognition by our peers shows that we take this very seriously and continually change with the times to be on the forefront of work place safety.”
