Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Click Bishop approved the Juneau Pioneer Home for the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) renewal. A news release states this is due to their outstanding employee safety and health programs.
"The Juneau Pioneer Home staff care deeply about the elders and about each other," Administrator Jill Sandleben said in the release. "This creates a sense of connectedness that results in being invested in the well-being of the JPH community as a whole."
SHARP is a federal recognition program. Participating employers are excused from programmed Alaska Occupational Safety and Health enforcement inspections during their recognition program. Employee complaints, accident investigations and other significant incidents will still result in enforcement action, the release states.
