Employer Testimonials

What are Kansas businesses saying about the KDOL Consultation program?

On benefits of improved safety in the workplace

"I have used the services provided by KDOL as a "double check" and a report card on how we are doing as far as maintaining our Safety Program and keeping our people safe and out of harm’s way. It's always nice to have a "second set of eyes" and a fresh approach when auditing our facility. I use the service every year or so because things change in our working environment and with your organizations help it verifies that we are doing the right thing. I also appreciate the knowledge and training that the representatives provide to make us better as a company.” Martin Machine and Welding, Inc. Halstead, Kan.

On workplace safety and employees

"Because of this (safety consultations), we were able to evolve from a safety program mentality to a safety culture reality. Everyone has accountabilities and responsibilities. Management is not the exception, it is the example. Everyone is held accountable for the choices they make." - Richard Brauer, Human Resources consultant, American Maplan Corporation, McPherson

"Production and quality ultimately reap the rewards when employee morale is improved by a company which gives precedence to employee safety." -- Debra Lizalde, Human Resources, Lowen Corporation, Hutchinson

"The consultations helped us shine, to improve on a daily basis. If you are serious about the safety and health of your employees, you will take advantage of the SHARP program." -- Paul Maness, Safety Manager, Farrar Corporation, Norwich and Manhattan

"SHARP is a very good way for employers to take a proactive approach in developing a superior safety program, with the help and oversight of the regulating community. Through SHARP, employees began to conscientiously watch and recognize hazards. They took responsibility along with the employer for working safely and providing a safe work environment." -- Paul Dalke, director of safety and environment, Beachner Grain, Erie
