Legendary Marina receives safety awards

In recognition of its safety efforts, Legendary Marina in Destin, Fla., received the Sunshine State Safety Recognition Award and was accepted into the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program.

The Sunshine State Safety Recognition Award is administered by USF SafetyFlorida, a service of the University of South Florida’s College of Public Health. It goes to Florida employers and employees who routinely engage in job safety.

To be considered for the award, a business must undergo an evaluation of the work site to assess safety management programs, a review of safety rules and training, analysis of internal safety inspection routines, and interviews with workers.

“It takes a team effort … to integrate safety as an ongoing practice,” said USF SafetyFlorida in a statement on its website. Around 40 businesses receive the award.

The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program is administered by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Businesses accepted into the program must have successfully used OSHA’s On-Site Construction program to improve workplace safety and health. The business must also operate a safety program and have injury and illness rates below the national average in an industry.

“It’s not easy to get into the SHARP program,” said Jeremy Holcomb, vice president of operations for the Legendary Boating Company,” in a statement. “Only 12 businesses in Florida carry the SHARP designation, and we are one of only three marinas in the nation to have received the designation.”
