The Kentucky Labor Cabinet’s Occupational Safety and Health (KY OSH) awarded ADI, a global wholesale distributor of security and low voltage products, certification under the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP). The company’s Louisville distribution facility was recognized for taking extraordinary measures to ensure the safety and health of its employees.

A plaque signifying the company’s certification under the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) was presented to the employees of ADI by Secretary Mark Brown of the Kentucky Labor Cabinet. The plaque was accepted by Ken Gurr, distribution center manager for ADI’s Louisville facility.

“SHARP recognizes employers who operate exemplary safety and health management systems and are committed to making safety for employees a priority,” said Brown during the award ceremony. “I am delighted to be here today to recognize ADI Company for their significant achievements in safety.”

The U.S. Department of Labor designed SHARP to encourage and recognize excellence in occupational safety and health among employers and create a proactive partnership with its Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). Although companies must meet federal standards for the program, the Kentucky Labor Cabinet presents the award as Kentucky operated its own federally approved Occupational Safety and Health (KY-OSH) program for over 35 years. ADI Company’s distribution operation in Louisville worked toward SHARP certification for a couple of years and became the thirteenth facility in Kentucky to attain SHARP certification.
