Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) announced that veteran construction safety expert Stephen M. Wiltshire has joined its 70-person staff as director of safety. Wiltshire will direct programs and initiatives that support the achievement of ABC’s strategic safety goals, including the Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP), a safety benchmarking and improvement tool for construction firms that can reduce incident rates by 87 percent. Wiltshire has designed and implemented award-winning safety programs, behavior-based training and loss control processes to create a culture of safety at ECS, Turner, Clark, AvalonBay and other construction firms in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area in addition to a stint as a compliance safety and health officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Among his many contributions to Occupational Safety and Health Administration committees, industry stakeholder groups and advisory councils, he has been an active member of ABC’s Health, Safety and Environment Committee for more than 20 years. Wiltshire earned a bachelor’s degree in human resources management from Wilmington University and a master’s degree in safety management from West Virginia University.
