Columbian Logistics Network is pleased to announce the renewal of it’s Michigan Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (MSHARP) certification from the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) at it’s Kentwood Distribution Center.
The MSHARP program was designed to recognize employers who promote worker safety and health with an emphasis on being proactive. The five required elements of the program include: management commitment and planning, employee involvement, safety and health training, work site analysis and hazard prevention and control. Onsite consultants review programs, and once approved, the certification lasts for 12 months. As an incentive, certified participants are exempt from inspection during the 12 month certification period. The MIOSHA program is part of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).
“Safety is the first among our core operating values. In order to provide service that improves our customer’s supply chain, our employees and partners must be able to focus on their job without undue fear of accident and injury. Participating in the MSHARP program is a natural extension of our commitment to safety.” Said Bob Christian, Executive Vice President of Operations.
