Occupational Health & Safety Bureau


The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recognizes small employers who operate an exemplary safety and health management system. Acceptance into the SHARP by OSHA is an achievement of status that will single you out among your business peers as a model for worksite safety and health. Upon receiving SHARP recognition, your worksite will be deferred from programmed inspections from OSHA Compliance/Enforcement during the period that your SHARP status is valid.

New Mexico Occupational Health and Safety Bureau (NM OHSB) manages two separate SHARP programs, the Construction SHARP and General Industry SHARP.
