The Ajax Safety Leadership Team is on task this week to renew Ajax’s MNSHARP Worksite status for 2020. Ajax is one of only 37 MNSHARP Worksites.
The Ajax Safety Leadership Team works directly with MNSHARP auditors to develop and implement the company’s written safety program. Key elements of this program include management leadership and employee involvement, allocation of resources to address safety issues, systems that identify and control workplace hazards, and a plan for employee safety training and education.
The Minnesota Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (MNSHARP) recognizes companies whose managers and employees work together to develop safety and health programs. MNSHARP seeks to go beyond basic compliance with all applicable OSHA standards towards immediate and long-term prevention of job-related injuries and illnesses.
U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), encourages employers to operate exemplary safety and health management systems by offering participation in recognition and exemption programs. MNSHARP is Minnesota’s version of that program.
