Florence Electric S.T.E.P. Award Recipient

Woburn, MA – Florence Electric, LLC, of Canton, recently was named a Platinum Safety, Training, and Evaluation Process (S.T.E.P.) Award recipient at the 11th Annual Gould Construction Institute (GCI) Safety & Education Dinner held at the Montvale Plaza in Stoneham.

For GCI, the S.T.E.P. Awards are the premier event of the year. “A contractor’s most valuable resource is its workers. There is nothing more important than jobsite safety,” commented Barbara Lagergren, president of the Gould Construction Institute.

The S.T.E.P. Awards are presented annually to ABC member companies with exceptional safety records, and this year’s applicant pool was fiercely competitive. Applicants are critiqued on a number of statistical factors such as incident rates, lost time, and OSHA recordables, combined with a safety audit consisting of 20 key components.

This year Florence Electric, LLC took home the Platinum S.T.E.P. Award in recognition of its outstanding commitment to ensuring a safe work environment for its workforce.
