Rodgers receives SHARP Award for Dosher’s new construction
A ceremony was held yesterday at Dosher Memorial Hospital in Southport, NC, where North Carolina’s Department of Labor Commissioner, Cherie Berry, recognized Rodgers’ commitment to a safe workplace by presenting the construction team with the SHARP award, which stands for Safety and Health Achievement Recognition program.
“Dosher Hospital is pleased that Rodgers Builders has received this award for their attention to safety in the construction of our new Inpatient Care Unit,” said Tom Siemers, Dosher Hospital president and CEO.
Among those who gathered for the ceremony were construction workers, subcontractors, representatives from Dosher Memorial Hospital, N.C. Department of Labor and local dignitaries. Along with Rodgers, 12 subcontracting firms were also presented with certificates of their achievement in meeting eligibility criteria and program requirements set by OSHA.
The program honors workplaces for operating an exemplary injury and illness prevention program. “We are very proud that the Dosher project team has worked nearly 70,000 hours with no lost time due to injuries or illness,” said Pat Rodgers, president and CEO of Rodgers. “Our goal is that every person working on this project goes home safely to their families at the end of every workday.”
