The Safety Consultation and Training Section (SCATS) of the State of Nevada’s Division of Industrial Relations recognizes Sega Sammy Creation USA Inc. for the successful renewal of the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP). This is the third time the Las Vegas facility has earned this top safety honor.
Sega Sammy Creation USA Inc. partnered with SCATS consultants to develop its comprehensive employee safety program and strives toward continuous growth.
“SCATS has been our team’s closest health and safety ally,” said Aiko Hatano, Human Resources Business Partner, Sega Sammy Creation USA Inc. “The SHARP designation is culture-changing and it will have a lasting impact on the health and safety standards for our employees and our workplace.”
Sega Sammy Creation USA Inc. is part of an elite group of businesses that have renewed their status with SHARP by maintaining exemplary health and safety protocols. Participation in the no-cost program provides incentives and support to employers to develop, implement and continuously improve programs at their worksite(s). By taking these proactive measures, businesses can reduce accident costs and ensure compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) regulations.
“Sega Sammy Creation USA Inc. has partnered with SCATS’ safety experts since first opening its facility – it’s been incredible to see how our teamwork has helped them achieve high safety standards from the start,” said Todd Schultz, Chief Administrative Officer for SCATS. “It’s an honor to support teams like this who prioritize employees’ health and well-being every day.”
SCATS consultants provide employers with confidential hazard identification, program development, implementation assistance and training. Employers who implement effective safety programs and have a days-away restricted transfer (DART) rate below the national average for their industry may be recognized by SCATS. Successful SHARP participants may receive up to a three-year deferral from OSHA’s general schedule inspections.
Businesses interested in SHARP can contact SCATS at 775-824-4630. For more information or for a schedule of free training courses offered by SCATS, businesses can call 1-877-4SAFENV.
