We are OSHA certified in the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP), and proud of it!  We were the second nursing home in the nation, and the first in Massachusetts, to achieve this certification, and we maintain our status rigorously.

The On-site Consultation Program's Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recognizes small business employers who operate an exemplary injury and illness prevention program. Acceptance of your worksite into SHARP from OSHA is an achievement of status that singles you out among your business peers as a model for worksite safety and health. Upon receiving SHARP recognition, OSHA exempts your worksite from OSHA programmed inspections during the period that your SHARP certification is valid.

What are the Benefits of SHARP?
