Company Interview on SHARP Designation
Your company has an exemplary safety and health program and illness and injury rate. How did you do it?
There are several things that helped us achieve this. First and foremost, we have 100% commitment to Safety from top management. Then, it’s a lot of training, constantly looking to improve, team work from every employee, and being able to depend on our resources like Georgia Tech.
What has Tech's value been in this process? Are there any differences that you noticed before Tech, and with Tech's involvement?
The differences before Tech and with Tech involvement are huge! Prior to Tech our rates were almost triple the national average and our whole program was very weak. We started using Tech in 2007 for OSHA training classes and consultation and it has been a constant path of improvement ever since.
What does SHARP mean to you, your employees, and the company?
It means "Pride" because we all worked as a team to achieve this. It means we have a safe place to work and that the Company does care about us. It also means improved business. Some of our customers recognize the importance of SHARP and they have brought their business to us because of it.
