SYNCON has been awarded the Diamond STEP Award in Safety

Chesapeake, Virginia, July 13 SYNCON LLC today announced it has achieved Diamond Level in Associated Builders and Contractors’ STEP Safety Management System. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP is a proven system that provides the framework to measure, strengthen and build industry-leading safety programs that enable top-performing ABC members to achieve incident rates nearly seven times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics construction industry average.

“Safety is top priority at SYNCON. We continuously discuss, review, and plan our safety operations to ensure we are aligning with the STEP Diamond Best Practices. SYNCON strives to achieve the highest rating for safety every day. Setting these high standards ensures that our workforce and those around us are safe.” Scott Turner, Executive VP.

STEP participants measure their safety processes and policies on key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing health and safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents. We share our knowledge and insights throughout the organization to improve processes and performance. Clear communication is one of our top priorities. Here at SYNCON we are great at coordinating with our subcontractors and planning ahead to minimize risk on all projects. Our team’s extensive experience is invaluable.

“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like SYNCON to actively build health and safety into their culture, creating industry-leading, holistic safety programs to protect their workers and deliver for their clients,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development. “STEP measures performance on key components, strengthens and expands best practices and builds safety culture. Our people are our greatest asset, and I commend SYNCON 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 85%, making the best-performing companies 688% safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Participant.

Dear Scott,

Happy New Year! We hope 2022 was a great year for you and this letter finds you well.

Thank you so much for supporting us by sponsoring Veterans Band Aid Music Festival last year! We had a very successful event and got our feet wet with a national headliner. Your contribution enabled us to give nearly $40,000 in grants to service-disabled veterans with either traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress, depression, or chronic pain, and in some instances, all four. The 11 veterans we gave therapy grants to were treated with either hyperbaric oxygen therapy or neurotherapy from local providers. These grants ranged in amount from $2500 to $5000. We hope to double the number of grants in 2023.

We look forward to hearing from you! Please let me know what questions you have.
