SAFETY

We are pleased to report that each of the three Maple Logistics warehousing and fulfillment sites – York, Lebanon, and Mount Joy – have individually been awarded OSHA’s elite Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) certification.  The certification recognizes employers who operate an exemplary injury and illness protection program.  Only 52 companies in Pennsylvania have achieved this honor.

This exceptional achievement is the culmination of all employees focusing on safety.  Successful initiatives range from increased training and awareness to safety audits, procedures, investments in ergonomic equipment to reduce the likelihood of injuries, and a robust and involved Safety Committee.  

Aside from reduced injuries, the benefits of being SHARP certified also include increased employee engagement, reduced employee turnover, and improved safety awareness inside and outside of the workplace.
