On August 7, 2018, Haws Corporation® was awarded SHARP status by the Nevada Division of Industrial Relations. SHARP, the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program, is an OSHA cooperative program that recognizes businesses with exemplary safety and health programs and lower than average injury rates.
As a manufacturer of emergency equipment for more than 60 years, safety is an essential part of Haws’ business. This attitude is reflected in not only the products that we sell, but also in how we operate day-to-day, and in our company culture.
As our CEO Tom White mentioned at a recent all-hands meeting, “Our goal is to make sure everyone gets to go home to see their families.” That commitment to safety starts with our employees and our facilities, and has given us outstanding safety ratings in our manufacturing, assembly, and administrative facilities.
Haws is proud to be one of the 36 companies in the state of Nevada to have achieved this certification. We recognize that the health and safety of our employees is integral to our success. For us, safety is much more than a policy book; it’s a core value that we apply to all aspects of our business.
