Sevan Receives ABC Step Platinum Safety Award

DOWNERS GROVE (December 14, 2020) – Sevan Multi-Site Solutions, Inc. (Sevan) — a global leader in innovative design, program management, construction services, and data analytics — received the Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) Platinum Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Illinois Chapter. The Platinum Award is an important recognition within ABC STEP, a world-class safety management system that dramatically improves safety performance among participants.

“The STEP award validates that our safety program is producing the results we’re aiming for,” said John Garcia, Vice President, Safety.

2020 marks the second year in a row that Sevan has received the Platinum Award. To participate, Sevan went through the STEP evaluation and won the second highest of six STEP award levels (Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Participant).

Sevan makes safety a priority for all team members and contractors. This begins with an extensive new hire orientation, followed by field audits and required safety trainings throughout the year. To improve on safety this year, Sevan commissioned the Safety Committee, which is comprised of various senior leaders to help provide a broader perspective of safety throughout the whole company.

Sevan has had an exemplary safety record since the company was founded in 2011. The company’s OSHA 300 shows zero accidents, zero incidents and zero time off. Sevan has received individual safety awards from numerous clients, and internally has an Excellence in Safety recognition program for team members who go above and beyond to set a high bar for safety.

“Safety is paramount in everything we do,” Garcia said. “It ensures we send our team members home safely at the end of the day, it helps us stay on schedule, it helps us stay on budget, and preserves our reputation with our clients.”

In September, Sevan hosted the Safety Excellence Awards dinner which celebrated employees who live out safety practices in their workplace. The Safety Excellence Awards dinner was paired with two other successful events including the Sevan Symposium and the Sevan Charitable Golf Classic.

In 2020, Sevan was recognized as an Employee-Rated Great Place to Work® for the 7th consecutive year and ranked No. 124 on the Financial Times FT 1000 list of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies. Also in 2020, Sevan ranked No. 16 on Engineering News-Record (ENR)’s Top 50 Program Management Firms and No. 34 on ENR’s Top 100 Construction Management-for-Fee Firms.
