INDIANAPOLIS – RISE, Inc. in Angola earned Indiana Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (INSHARP) certification.
Indiana Department of Labor Commissioner Rick Ruble said INSHARP certification is a milestone for workplace safety. He said RISE’s commitment to maximizing employee participation while working to improve their worksite safety and health program is a model for all businesses to follow.
To participate in INSHARP, a company must develop, implement and maintain an exemplary worker safety and health management system and pass a comprehensive safety and health evaluation by the Department of Labor. The facility’s occupational injury and illness rates must be below the national industry average. Less than 50 Indiana employers have achieved INSHARP certification.
With more than 174 employees, RISE, Inc. is an employment training and rehabilitation center for adolescents and adults with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. It’s operated in Steuben County for more than 50 years.
