Morris Yachts honored for safety in Maine

Maine commissioner of labor Jeanne Paquette announced this week that Morris Yachts earned the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program Award, which recognizes businesses that voluntarily undertake a rigorous safety program.

“Employers earn SHARP recognition by operating their facility under exemplary safety and health management standards,” Gov. Paul R. LePage said. “I congratulate Morris Yachts. … When businesses and workers partner to make safety a priority, everyone benefits.”

To qualify for SHARP, companies must undergo a comprehensive audit, correct all hazards identified during an on-site health and safety consultation, demonstrate that effective safety and health programs are in place, and maintain injury rates below the industry average for the last year of completed data.

After the SHARP designation, OSHA will remove Morris Yachts from its general scheduled inspection list for two years. If the company continues to meet all conditions of the program, the SHARP designation can be renewed for another two years.
