How can my Small Business Participate in SHARP?


To participate in SHARP, you must:

  • Request a comprehensive consultation visit from your On-site Consultation office that involves a complete hazard identification survey;
  • Involve employees in the consultation process;
  • Correct all hazards identified by the consultant;
  • Implement and maintain an injury and illness prevention program that, at a minimum, addresses OSHA's 1989 Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines;
  • Maintain your company's Days Away, Restricted, or Transferred (DART) rate and Total Recordable Case (TRC) rate below the national average for your industry; and
  • Agree to notify your state's On-site Consultation office prior to making any changes in the working conditions or introducing new hazards into the workplace.

To schedule an On-site Consultation visit and determine your eligibility for SHARP, contact your state's On-site Consultation office.
