Soldotna's Barton Approved For Alaska Safety and Health Award


Juneau, AK (CompNewsNetwork) - Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Click Bishop approved the Soldotna medical offices of Dr. Theodore Barton for the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program award as a result of outstanding employee safety and health programs.

SHARP is a federal recognition program, administered by the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health Section in the department's Labor Standards and Safety Division. Participating employers are excused from programmed AKOSH enforcement inspections during the recognition period. However, employee complaints, accident investigations or other significant incidents will result in enforcement action.

"We appreciate SHARP. Belonging to it has helped us tremendously in keeping up with our OSHA compliance," said medical assistant Heike Sykstra. "The AKOSH staff is always helpful and available for questions and any other assistance we need."

Companies that partner with AKOSH and achieve SHARP status are likely to experience fewer workplace accidents and reduced workers' compensation insurance costs.
