JCB Honored for Workplace Safety

One of the companies that helps to put coastal Georgia on the worldwide map won a very high honor today. JCB received the SHARP award, which stands for Safety and Health Achievement Recognition, from OSHA, the group that monitors safety and health in the workplace.

They say JCB meets a safety standard that only four other companies in Georgia have been able achieve in the past ten years.

"It says they care, they are committed to employees, they care about safety," said John Deifer, OSHA's area director. "They're concerned about their welfare and morale of the employees and [the award] shows the community this is a safe place and good business in the area."

JCB has been manufacturing construction equipment in the Savannah area since 2000 and the company says it will maintain its commitment to safe and quality services for everyone.
