Axxiom Receives Safety Award in Texas

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

Comment | More

The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (TDI-DWC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently recognized Axxiom Manufacturing (Fresno, TX) for its outstanding safety program. Axxiom, which makes equipment used in coating work, was awarded the Safety and Health Administration Recognition Program (SHARP) award for low incidences of work-related injuries and illnesses and participation in TDI-DWC’s Occupational Safety and Health Consultation (OSHCON) program.

Axxiom employs 48 people and manufactures abrasive blasting equipment, moisture separators, air dryers, aftercoolers, and several types of storage and transfer systems. The company has been granted a one-year exemption from programmed OSHA inspections for winning the SHARP award.

The SHARP award was designed by the U.S. Department of Labor in order to recognize excellence in occupational safety and health among small, private sector Texas employers. OSHCON is a free service to help employers understand and comply with OSHA standards through safety inspections conducted by TDI-DWC’s professional consultants.

To be eligible for the SHARP award, employers must receive consultation from the OSHCON program, have fewer than 250 employees at the work site and fewer than 500 corporate-wide, have operations limited to a fixed worksite, have worked with OSHCON for at least one year, involve employees in the consultation process, correct all hazards identified by OSHCON, and have days away restricted time (DART) and total care rate (TCR) below the national averages for the relative industry.

For more information on the OSHCON program and SHARP, contact oshcon@tdi.state.tx.us.
