- Develop innovative safety and health programs.
CREATE A CULTURE

- Attract skilled workers looking for a safe and healthy workplace
- Lower worker compensation premiums;
- Improve your worker retention;
- Reduce worker days away from work.
How can my small business participate in SHARP?
- Request a full safety and health consultation visit from SCATS;
- Involve employees in the consultation process;
- Correct all hazards identified by the consultant;
- Implement and maintain effective safety and health programs.
- Maintain your company’s accident and injury rates below the national average for your industry.
- Have a minimum of one year operating history.
- Permit the company’s name to be used in the publicity and recognition activities of the program.
What if my small business is not quite ready for SHARP?
If you meet most but not all of the SHARP eligibility criteria and are committed to working toward SHARP approval, you may be recommended for Pre-SHARP status. Pre-SHARP allows time to fully implement effective safety and health programs. During this time, you are granted a deferral from OSHA programmed inspections. You have up to 18 months to achieve SHARP status. SCATS’ consultants will assist you during Pre-SHARP.
