Spruce Park Auto Body Receives Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Award
JUNEAU, Alaska—Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Click Bishop approved Spruce Park Auto Body Inc. for the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program renewal as a result of outstanding employee safety and health programs.
“We at Spruce Park Auto Body have been pleased to be a participant in OSHA’s Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program,” Vice President Ken Perrault said. “Our team at Spruce Park has strived to have the most safety conscious work environment possible. While working hand in hand with OSHA safety consultants we have been able to stay ahead of potential workplace hazards by developing more proactive safety plans that involve all employees. We know that our workplace is more secure thanks to SHARP.”
SHARP is a federal recognition program, administered by the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health Section in the department’s Labor Standards and Safety Division. Participating employers are excused from programmed AKOSH enforcement inspections during the recognition period. However, employee complaints, accident investigations or other significant incidents will result in enforcement action.
Companies that partner with AKOSH and achieve SHARP status are likely to experience fewer workplace accidents and reduced workers’ compensation insurance costs.
