Accredited Quality Contractor

The Lemoine Company has been designated by Associated Builders and Contractors as an Accredited Quality Contractor. Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), founded in 1950, is a national construction industry trade association representing 20,000+ chapter members. The Program recognizes and honors construction firms which have documented their commitment in four key corporate responsibilities: Safety, Employee Benefits, Training and Community Relations.

STEP Award

ABC’s Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) award recognizes members who employ effective safety practices on their job sites, and are based on 20 key components of contractor safety programs such as management commitment, pre-planning for safety on job sites, safety training and resources committed to safety.

This ABC program, in partnership with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), is designed to create a three prong attack on the task of improving safety in our workplace. These awards recognize the company’s commitment, our safety statistics and includes a tough, honest and complete audit of its safety program. Lemoine is poised to have received this certification since 2000, holding the highest level achievable, Diamond, since 2017.
