LOOK WHO'S SHARP
The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) provides incentives and support to small, high-hazard employers to work with their employees to develop, implement and continuously improve the effectiveness of their workplace safety and health programs. A listing of Kansas SHARP companies is found here.
Companies that have qualified for SHARP can participate in the SHARP Association. This self-governing group serves members by networking about workplace safety and mentoring one another through idea sharing. For more information on the Kansas SHARP Association click here.
A SHARP presentation was held for Flame Engineering Inc. of Lacrosse for reaching 13 years with no lost time accidents. Lost time accidents implies a non-fatal accident that causes any loss of time from work. KDOL Secretary Lana Gordon presented company officials a certificate during a special ceremony attended by management and staff members. Flame Engineering has been part of the Safety & Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) company since October of 2000, a designation which remains in effect today.
