Recognition Programs

The Safety Consultation and Training Section offers qualified Nevada businesses the opportunity to be recognized for their safety and health program achievements.

Recipients of the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) award are recognized for their exemplary safety and health management systems. Organizations that receive SHARP recognition are exempt from programmed OSHA inspections during the period that the SHARP certification is valid.

The Safe Partner Award is awarded to organizations that fully utilize our full service consultation and training services. The Safe Partner Award is designed to increase safety awareness and strengthen the safety culture within the workplace.

The Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) in Nevada recognizes employers and workers who have implemented effective safety and health management systems and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries. VPP participants are exempt from OSHA Enforcement programmed inspections while they maintain their VPP status.

Award recipients are publicly recognized through publicity and recognition activities of the program. For more information on the eligibility requirements of SHARP, Safe Partner or VPP, contact us at 1-877-472-3368.
