Padebco Full Service Boatyard & Custom Boat Builder said it is the 60th Maine business to be recognized by OSHA in the Safety & Health Achievement Recognition Program.

SHARP certification requires small-business employers to partner with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s consultation services program, participate in a comprehensive on-site audit similar to an OSHA inspection, correct any identified hazards and operate with an exemplary worksite health and safety plan.

Padebco said there are fewer than 2,000 SHARP-certified companies across the United States.

“Padebco is committed to workplace safety, and we are very proud to attain SHARP certification,” Padebco owners Leon and Sara MacCorkle said in a statement. “We value our crew, and their workplace safety and health is paramount to Padebco Full Service Boatyard & Custom Boat Builder. We are grateful for the assistance of SafetyWorks!, Maine's Department of Labor on-site consultation services.”

Padebco is a builder of custom Down East-style fiberglass boats. The company builds 17- to 32-foot cruisers, center consoles and walkarounds.
