Esstech Inc. Awarded OSHA SHARP Certification (7/29/09)

Esstech Inc. of Essington, PA, has been awarded SHARP certification (Safety & Health Achievement Recognition Program) through OSHA. This rating has been achieved by less than 40 other companies in Pennsylvania. 

The certification required Esstech to undergo a series of inspections and interviews and also work with the Indiana University of Pennsylvania for OSHA consultation. The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recognizes all employers

The SHARP certification was awarded to Esstech after an on-site audit of its utility operations. OSHA inspectors rated Esstech on more than 50 items ranging from hazard prevention and safety and health training to management supervision and employee participation. Companies must meet or exceed OSHA standards in every category to receive SHARP certification.  

Esstech will formally receive the award during a ceremony at their facility, to be conducted at 10:00 a.m. on September 1, 2009. As a certified SHARP site, Esstech is granted a one-year exemption from OSHA's scheduled inspections and can renew its certification annually.
