"Know safety; No injury.  No safety, Know injury.”

                                                               Author unknown

         This past November, the City of Jasper and its employees, were recognized with another INSHARP designation by the Indiana Department of Labor. It begins our 14th year of INSHARP certification.

         INSHARP is a federally recognized program, providing recognition, rewards and ongoing support to small Hoosier employers that operate exemplary safety and health management systems. Certification in INSHARP is an achievement of status that will single employers out among business peers as a model worksite for occupational safety and health.

        What does INSHARP certification mean to Jasper citizens?

  • It means city employees are provided the highest level of safety and training.
  • Of more than 150,000 organizations in Indiana eligible for INSHARP, only 40 have met the stringent qualifications.
  • Jasper remains the only government – state, county or municipal – INSHARP-certified in Indiana.
  • Every workplace in the City is part of INSHARP – not just one. That is an astounding achievement.
  • Thank you to our Safety Committee and our Personnel/Safety/Loss Control Department – Cale Knies and Cindy Hochgesang – for all your work!

SAFETY NEVER TAKES A HOLIDAY!
