Do It Best's Mesquite, Nevada distribution center supplies hardware and home improvement products to Do It Best member-owners across eight states and multiple international locations.

Do It Best–Mesquite first earned Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) status from Nevada’s Safety Consultation and Training Section (SCATS) in May of 2015. The distribution center team successfully renewed SHARP status for their site in July 2023. SHARP designation is just one way the warehouse furthers its commitment to safety to ensure its 114 employees return home safely at the end of each day. SHARP acknowledges small and medium-sized businesses that have used OSHA On-Site Consultation services and operate exemplary workplace safety and health programs. Small businesses that achieve SHARP status receive a deferral from OSHA or State Plan programmed inspections for the period that the SHARP designation is valid. Acceptance of a worksite into SHARP is an achievement that identifies the employer as a model for occupational safety and health among its business peers.

"Our SHARP involvement helps boost the culture of safety within our warehouse,"" said Cole Atwood, department manager at Do It Best-Mesquite. “Getting team members to ‘buy into’ safety can be a challenge, but being a SHARP-certified facility has made it easier and it's been a true team effort and accomplishment.”

By partnering with SCATS, Do It Best–Mesquite implemented new business practices that enhanced safety and training programs. During the decade-long partnership with SCATS, Do It Best-Mesquite completed five years without experiencing a lost-time incident onsite. In a video posted on the SCATS website, general manager Wendy Kinney provides more detail about the company's partnership with SCATS and its continuous improvement in workplace safety and health.
