Kaloutas - Recipient of the Platinum S.T.E.P. Safety Award

How deep is your painter’s commitment to safety?

It’s easy to claim that safety is a priority, but actually taking measurable steps to demonstrate your commitment is a different story.

Here at Kaloutas, we have put feet to our safety initiatives, continuing our goal to send everyone home at the end of the day in the same condition in which they arrived. Our team trusts us to provide all the necessary tools and training to do this, and we rely on them to live out our safety procedures on every jobsite. Accountability, training, oversight by experienced crew leaders, and rigorous job planning/safety checks all contribute to our complete culture of safety.

We’re excited to announce that these efforts have been noticed, and that Kaloutas was recently awarded the Platinum S.T.E.P. Safety Award during the 13th annual ABC/GCI Safety & Training Education Dinner.

What Is a Platinum S.T.E.P. Safety Award, and How Did We Earn It?

Every year, ABC (Associated Builders and Contractors of Massachusetts) and the GCI (Gould Construction Institute, ABC’s training affiliate) host the S.T.E.P. awards. This event is dedicated to honoring local contractors who have shown the most dedication to workplace safety. The winners are determined by an analysis of such factors as:

  • Incident rates
  • Lost time
  • OSHA recordables
  • Safety audit consisting of twenty key components
  • Exceptional safety records

Over 60 local companies were in the running for the award (and we commend them!), but we are proud to say that our team took the Platinum S.T.E.P. Safety Award home. It is a combined effort, and we would like to thank every member of the Kaloutas family for their own, personal dedication to maintaining our standards.
