Engelberth Construction is pleased to announce that the Vermont Department of Labor recently presented Engelberth with the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) award for the King Arthur Flour Expansion Project in Norwich, VT. This marks Engelberth’s second SHARP designation for a project making Engelberth the only contractor in the United States to achieve this accomplishment.
Marthe Kent, OSHA’s New England Regional Administrator and Jim Mulligan, OSHA’s New England Regional Assistant Administrator were on hand for the presentation. Also in attendance were Engelberth’s local Project WorkSafe Consultants; Scott Myers, Program Manager, Harlo Wells, Hazel Hunter and Luke McCarthy, as well as Steve Monahan, Director of Workers’ Compensation and Safety for the Vermont Department of Labor.
Not an award given lightly in the construction industry, Engelberth Construction has been participants in a pilot program to establish construction companies in the SHARP program.
SHARP is an OSHA consultative cooperative program which recognizes employers who have successfully incorporated safety and health management practices in the workplace. The program provides assistance to employers to work with their employees to find and correct hazards, pre-plan to anticipate hazards and provide tools to continuously improve their safety and health processes.
Achieving SHARP status took commitment and dedication by everyone on site. Engelberth would like to give special recognition to the Engelberth team, King Arthur Flour, and Engelberth’s subcontractors for their cooperation, hard work and commitment to Safety.
