Western Aircraft, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that for the seventh year in a row it has received the OSHA Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) award, for its exemplary safety and training.
“We are very pleased to be recognized for our dedication to a safe work environment,” said Miguel Velasco, Western Aircraft’s Manager of Environmental Health and Safety. “The well-being of our employees and our customers is paramount.”
Velasco added that some of the contributing factors to the overall success of Western’s safety record include their employee’s involvement in identifying hazards, the site-wide weekly sharing of electronic dashboards with safety statistics, safety awareness posters throughout the work site and an active safety committee.
SHARP recognizes employers with less than 250 employees who operate excellent safety and health management systems. SHARP is one of the highest awards OSHA can give to a small company.
