Leading the Safety Industry by Demonstrating Outstanding Safety Practices on Site Everyday
In the Business of Safety
While producing the most innovative safety solutions on the market, Accuform Signs maintains exemplary safety practices in its own facilities.
Accuform Signs has recently become a S.H.A.R.P. (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) certified business, a top accolade of safe work practices. As part of the rigorous safety certification, Accuform Signs agreed to implement and maintain a safety and health management system that addresses OSHA’s Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines. Accuform must also work to reduce its Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (DART) rate, and Total Recordable Case (TRC) rate below national average. The certification involves an ongoing effort to maintain and improve safety standards; Accuform has agreed to notify its state Consultation Project Office prior to making changes to working conditions or introducing new hazards into the workplace.
Charlene Sitterly, program director of USF SafetyFlorida, says that earning a S.H.A.R.P. award is a badge of honor. “Businesses dedicated to workplace safety and health that earn this award work tremendously hard every day to keep their people safe. I commend Accuform Signs for its commitment to their employees’ safety and well-being.”
Accuform Signs is very proud to be one of under 100 companies that are S.H.A.R.P. certified. As a company manufacturing safety products, the certification identifies Accuform Signs as uniquely and sincerely dedicated to a culture of safety. The program requires the company to collaborate with employees throughout the consultation process, reinforcing the commitment to individual safety, health, and communication that Accuform has repeatedly shown since its inception. Actively striving for better working conditions within its own walls is one of the many ways that Accuform Signs has developed trust and respect in the local community, amognst employees, and within the safety industry.
