First Plastics Manufacturer in Illinois, currently 35th overall company in Illinois
St. Charles-- August 2021 -- Wise Plastics Technologies located in St. Charles, Illinois has been accepted by the United States Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) into their prestigious S.H.A.R.P. program. The program was established by OSHA in 1989 and recognizes small business employers who have used OSHA’s on-site consultation program services and have exemplary and successful safety and health programs. It’s the highest honor OSHA gives to small businesses.
“Obtaining the SHARP designation is a testament to the efforts Wise Plastics Technologies employees have shown in regards to safety,“ said Andy Purvin, E.H.&S. Specialist at Wise Plastics. “Increasing safety awareness and training while at the same time lowering incident rates in the plastics manufacturing industry was an accomplishment on its own. The help we received from OSHA On-Site Consultation Program was integral in our success. The emphasis we put into hazard recognition and abatement has already shown other successes in employee morale, a positive safety culture, and a decrease in accidents. We have already begun laying the groundwork to start the SHARP Process for our second manufacturing site in West Chicago.”
