Sevan receives ABC STEP Platinum Award

Safety a top priority for Sevan during Construction Safety Week, every day

Sevan Multi-Site Solutions, LLC (Sevan) — a global leader in survey, design, program management, construction services and facility management — received a Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) Platinum Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors Illinois Chapter. The ABC STEP award has evolved into a world-class safety management system that dramatically improves safety performance among participants.

Sevan goes through every measure to ensure Safety is a priority for all team members and contractors everywhere. This begins with an extensive new hire orientation, followed by field audits and required safety trainings throughout the year.

“The award validates what we’ve been doing, is in fact, working and producing the results we’ve aimed for,” said John Garcia, Vice President of Safety.

Sevan participated in the STEP evaluation for the first time and received the Platinum level award, which is the second highest. Next, Garcia is aiming for Sevan to receive the Diamond level recognition in 2020.

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

“Safety is paramount in everything we do,” Garcia said. “It ensures we send our team members home safe 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.”

Construction Safety Week is May 6 through 10. One of Sevan’s tenets is Safety, and the company, its leaders and team members heavily focus on Safety.

Sevan helps global brands roll out multi-site initiatives every day. One major client is McDonald’s, where we proudly remodeled more than 2,000 sites in 2018 including the iconic Rock-N-Roll McDonald’s at 600 N. Clark Street. Additional clients include 7-Eleven, BP, Chipotle, Kroger, Starbucks, Walgreens, Walmart and many more.

In October 2018, Sevan was named one of the 100 Best Medium Workplaces by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE, ranking #29 on the list. Great Place to Work (GPTW) analyzed anonymous feedback from more than 158,000 U.S. employees answering more than 60 survey questions. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees themselves say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential. GPTW also assessed employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values and the effectiveness of their leaders. Sevan has been recognized as an Employee Rated Great Place to Work for 5 consecutive years.

Sevan is ranked #1468 on the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
