The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) acknowledges businesses with exemplary safety and health programs that comply voluntarily with the applicable standards.
“I congratulate Roanoke Cement Company on achieving status in the SHARP program,” said John R. Bogner, Jr., Consultative Services Bureau Chief, OSHA/NCDOL. “As a SHARP employer, you have corrected all workplace hazards identified by our consultants and have agreed to maintain an ongoing, effective workplace safety and health management system. We sincerely appreciate the efforts put forth by your company and its employees."

Official ceremonies will beheld later this month at each teminal by the NCDOL, whose representatives will present each Roanoke Cement terminal manager with a flag to be flown at their campus recognizing this achievement.
