Chemex Global Achieves World-Class Safety Standards Through Diamond-Level ABC STEP Program


HOUSTON, TEXAS, April 4, 2023 — Chemex Global announced it has achieved Diamond-level status in the Associated Builders and Contractor’s STEP Safety Management System. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP has evolved into a world-class safety program that dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants, with top-performing Diamond members achieving incident rates 645% safer than the industry average. 


“Chemex is exceptionally proud to achieve Diamond-level status through ABC’s STEP program,” said Chemex President and CEO Doran Oancia. “Attaining this status demonstrates how dedicated our team is to safety. Safety is at the core of everything we do and is a pillar of our business, and I believe this achievement further solidifies that.”  


“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors, like Chemex Global, to have safer and more productive job sites,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC Vice President of Health, Safety, Environment and Workforce Development. “Committing to total human health is essential to ensure the physical and mental health and safety of our workforce, and I commend Chemex for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raise the bar of safety performance.”


According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, STEP participants, regardless of company size or type of work, can reduce recordable incidents up to 84%, making the best-performing companies more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Participant.
