Fayette County steel plant earns OSHA's SHARP status

When we talk about workers' compensation and workplace accidents on our blog, the stories are rarely uplifting. Usually we discuss the situation of a worker who has suffered an injury on the job or was tragically killed while working. Today, however, we have some better news to share. 

A company in Pennsylvania is doing its part to create a safe work environment for all of its employees. Just a few weeks ago, MLP Steel Plant in Scottsdale was recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for having an exceptionally safe workplace. The business was inducted into OSHA's Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program. The award went to MLP's plant in Everson. 

The plant in Scottsdale, Fayette Works, was recognized for having more than 100,000 hours of work time with no accidents that resulted in an employee needing time off. MLP Steel is one of only 25 companies in the western part of the state to receive the SHARP status. MLP employs approximately 100 people at its two plants.

This company has shown that there are some employers in Pennsylvania to take the health and safety of their employees extremely seriously. And why wouldn't they? From a business perspective, having good safety standards will reduce the risk that an employee will become injured and therefore need time off of work.

Now that we know there are employers in Pennsylvania who take the issue of work accidents seriously, hopefully the rest will follow their lead. All Pennsylvania workers deserve to go to work each day feeling confident that they will be safe from injury.
