The Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) has awarded Mapei Corporation, in Tempe, with its Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) award in recognition of their exemplary safety and health management systems. They join 24 other companies in Arizona with this distinction.
“At ADOSH we believe that an employer’s safety efforts are an integral part of the entire company operations,” said Jessie Atencio, assistant director and consultation and training program manager for ADOSH. “Companies that earn the SHARP award show the responsibility and care needed to operate a safe, successful business, and that is exactly what Mapei has shown.”
To qualify for the SHARP award, ADOSH evaluates an employer’s overall workplace safety and health efforts, including written programs, injury and illness rates and how integrated safety programs are with the day-to-day work environment. ADOSH conducts a full workplace inspection including extensive employee interviews.
