Electrical Contractor Joins Oregon SHARP

Oregon OSHA has welcomed Reese Electric in North Bend as the latest employer in the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

Oregon OSHA announced Reese Electric, an electrical contractor located in North Bend, ORe., is the latest employer in the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program. SHARP provides an incentive for Oregon employers to work with their employees to find and correct hazards, develop and implement effective safety and health programs, and continuously improve. According to OR-OSHA, the ultimate goal of SHARP is to encourage employers to become self-sufficient in managing workplace safety and health issues. Participants receive a limited exemption from programmed inspections.

About 65 employer locations in Oregon participate in SHARP, and about 100 facilities have graduated from the program.

Reese Electric offers industrial, commercial, and residential services and employs 28 full-time workers in North Bend and three in a branch office. "Gaining SHARP recognition has been quite a process and helped us focus on safety in all areas -– not just project sites, but right here at our home offices and shops," said the owner, Randy Rema. "All of our employees are proud of the role they have played in earning this recognition and work every day to maintain it."

Oregon employers that have been in business for more than one year are eligible to apply for SHARP regardless of their size or type of business. For more information, visit www.orosha.org.
