The Safety Health Achievement Recognition Program is a wonderful way for the OSHA to recognize those businesses or workplaces, which have compiled with OSHA safety regulations.
The certification and recognition in the SHARP program involves a visit by an OSHA consultant. The consultant will outline areas needing improvement, which might be hazardous to your employees. After improvement in these areas, it will then be determined if your business can become certified.
The OSHA consultation office will also monitor statistics as you lower your workplace injury and illness rates. The consultant must also be notified if any changes are made to the workplace, in case new dangers are introduced.
