What Is Sharp?

This program provides incentives and support to small, high­hazard employers. The program recognizes employers who have demonstrated exemplary achievements in workplace safety and health. To be considered for SHARP an employer must receive a comprehensive safety and health consultation visit, correct all workplace safety and health hazards, adopt and implement effective safety and health management systems, and agree to request further consultative visits if major changes in working conditions occur. Employers meeting these specific program requirements may be exempt from general scheduled OSHA inspections for one year.
