OSHA SAFETY AND HEALTH ACHIEVEMENT AND RECOGNITION PROGRAM
WBI Energy Corrosion Services is a proud recipient of the OSHA Safety and Health Achievement and Recognition Program, or SHARP. This award is given to companies who voluntarily bring the Consultation Program at Montana Department of Labor and Industry into their facilities for a full site audit, allow OSHA to review their written health and safety programs, and correct or change any deficiencies or violations OSHA finds or suggests.
WBI Energy was first awarded SHARP status in 2016 and remains in the program today. To be accepted and retain SHARP status, we must maintain OSHA recordable injury rates that are below the industry norms for cathodic protection companies.
The program is designed for continuous improvement. OSHA visits the facility on a biannual basis and works with us to create goals to improve our health and safety programs that are tracked.
Our core group of employees has been together for more than 20 years, working exclusively in the corrosion-prevention industry.
Many of our employees are accredited by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers. NACE accreditation features various levels of certification depending on work experience and the amount and type of classroom training. To achieve this certification, employees attend in-depth classroom training and must pass a rigorous examination.
