Free On-Site Safety and Health Consultations are provided to businesses at their request. Businesses that participate in the Missouri On-Site Safety and Health Consultation Program may be eligible to become a SHARP member. SHARP members have lower workers’ compensation insurance premiums and are exempt from Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspections for a period of time. In federal fiscal year 2018, the safety program corrected conditions at participating businesses that could have resulted in more than $12 million in OSHA fines. In addition, 3,701 workplace hazards were remedied.
