Western Aircraft received the OSHA Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (Sharp) award, for its safety and training. This year marks the seventh year in a row the company received the honor.
Sharp recognizes employers with fewer than 250 employees who operate excellent safety and health management systems. Sharp is one of the highest awards OSHA can give to a small company.
“We are pleased to be recognized for our dedication to a safe work environment,” said Miguel Velasco, Western Aircraft’s manager of environmental health and safety. “The well-being of our employees and our customers is paramount.”
Velasco added that some of the contributing factors to the overall success of Western’s safety record include employees’ involvement in identifying hazards, the site-wide weekly sharing of electronic dashboards with safety statistics, safety awareness posters throughout the work site and an active safety committee.
Western Aircraft is an FBO, FAA-certified aircraft repair station and factory-authorized maintenance/modification facility for Dassault Falcon, Beechcraft, Honeywell, Rockwell Collins, Universal Avionics, Pilatus, Piaggio and other suppliers to the corporate and general aviation industry.
