Success Stories

Success stories from OSHA's On-Site Consultation Program and Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recognize both the important work of On-Site Consultation and small business employers who operate exemplary safety and health programs. On-Site Consultation and SHARP are voluntary programs. To submit a request for a comprehensive consultation, see OSHA's Consultation Directory.

Authorized representatives from SHARP companies who would like to share their story of workplace safety and health may do so by working with their On-Site Consultant. To locate the On-Site Consultation program nearest you, see OSHA's Consultation Directory.
