FALLON, Nev., January 25, 2022 (Newswire.com) - The Safety Consultation and Training Section (SCATS) of the State of Nevada's Division of Industrial Relations recognizes Gemini, Inc.'s Nevada manufacturing plant for successful entry into the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP). This is the first time the plant has earned this top safety honor.
Gemini has worked with SCATS consultants to develop their employee safety program and strives toward continuous growth.
"Collaboration is the key to safety at Gemini," said Phil Sabatino, Plant Manager. "Each time our SCATS partners tour our plant, we find more ways to make meaningful improvements to our safety program. Their expertise and service help lower our risk of workplace injury and that's a 'win' for everybody."
Gemini is part of an elite group of businesses that have achieved SHARP status by maintaining exemplary health and safety protocols. Participation in the no-cost program provides incentives and support to employers to develop, implement and continuously improve programs at their worksite(s). By taking these proactive measures, businesses can reduce accident costs and ensure compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) regulations.
"Gemini is a committed safety leader within the manufacturing industry," said Todd Schultz, Chief Administrative Officer for SCATS. "It's rewarding to see companies like Gemini ensure their employees return home safe and healthy every day."
SCATS consultants provide employers with confidential hazard identification, program development, implementation assistance and training. Employers who implement effective safety programs and have a days away restricted transfer (DART) rate below the national average for their industry may be recognized by SCATS. Successful SHARP participants may receive up to a three-year deferral from OSHA's general schedule inspections.
Businesses interested in SHARP can contact SCATS at 775-824-4630. For more information or for a schedule of free training courses offered by SCATS, businesses can call 1-877-4SAFENV or visit 4safenv.state.nv.us.
