Tualatin plant recognized for safety achievement
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Precision Wire Components joins SHARP

SALEM, Ore. – Oregon OSHA will welcome Precision Wire Components LLC next month as the latest employer in the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

SHARP provides an incentive for Oregon employers to work with their employees to find and correct hazards, develop and implement effective safety and health programs, and continuously improve. The ultimate goal of SHARP is to encourage employers to become self-sufficient in managing workplace safety and health issues. Currently, 63 employer locations in Oregon participate in SHARP, in addition to 83 facilities that have graduated from the program.

At Precision Wire Components, employees make wire components used in minimally invasive surgical procedures for cardiology, neurology and other applications that target reducing patient recovery time and hospital stays. The company employs 380 people at its Tualatin plant.

“All employees can feel good about working in a safe environment,” said Todd Hill, president of Precision Wire Components LLC. “Employees are genuinely free to point out and help correct anything that might undermine safety. This recognition is definitely a win-win for our company and we thank all of our employees for making it possible.”

Participation in SHARP doesn’t eliminate regulatory enforcement, although SHARP participants do receive a limited exemption from programmed inspections. Employees retain all workplace safety and health rights contained in the Oregon Safe Employment Act.

Oregon employers that have been in business for more than one year are eligible to apply for SHARP regardless of size or type of business.
