Komatsu Equipment was awarded the prestigious Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) Award at its Salt Lake City, Utah, facility on April 12. Komatsu Equipment is the first company to receive the certification in the heavy equipment industry in Utah and fourteenth overall company to become SHARP certified in the state.
“I am very proud of our Komatsu Equipment Company Salt Lake City team for their diligence and dedication in maintaining a work environment that is safe and healthy for our customers and our employees,” said John Pfisterer, president of Komatsu Equipment. “It is rewarding to have their efforts recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.”
The SHARP award recognizes small employers who participate in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) onsite consultation program and who make a commitment to operate an injury and illness prevention program. OSHA's onsite consultation program is the agency's primary platform for providing small business owners consultation services to address hazards and improve workplace safety and health. Earning the SHARP Award benefits employers by creating a strong safety culture and building an admirable reputation.
“Our employees work together every day to help keep one another safe,” said Jim Slade, branch manager. “We are delighted to be recognized for this achievement.”
