Roscoe Recertifies for OSHA's SHARP Program

Roscoe is currently recertifying for OSHA's Safety & Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

SHARP is designed for businesses with less than 250 employees who have dedicated themselves to enacting an exemplary injury and illness prevention program.

While SHARP certification is not a requirement for Roscoe to conduct business, we take pride in maintaining a safe and secure environment for our employees so they can be happy, productive and provide the highest quality of service to our work uniform rental customers.
