Attending the event were Joseph Giddings, Jana Morales, and David Murry from SCATS, Rob Reed and Scott Munson from Pro Group, James Settelmeyer NV State Senator and everyone from Maxton.
“The Safety Consultation and Training Section (SCATS) Program’s Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recognize small business employers who operate an exemplary injury and illness prevention program. Acceptance of your worksite into SHARP from SCATS is an achievement of status that singles you out among your business peers as a model for worksite safety and health. Congratulations to Maxton Manufacturing for becoming one of the 25 Nevada employers that have achieved SHARP status,” said Joseph Giddings, CSP Consultation Supervisor for SCATS.
Some of the benefits of Maxton attaining SHARP status include reduced workers compensation costs, removal from OSHA impromptu inspections for two years, an enhanced open channel of communication with OSHA, and the positive employee recognition for this achievement.
