Two Henningsen Cold Storage Company facilities in Twin Falls, Idaho, have earned membership in the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) of the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). A recognition ceremony will be held January 9 at the company’s headquarters.

"Henningsen has placed safety as a core value in its business plan. In collaboration with employees, it continues to improve an already excellent safety and health management system," said OSHA
regional administrator Richard Terrill in Seattle.

Henningsen Cold Storage is a full service, public refrigerated warehousing company offering more than 37 million cubic feet of frozen and refrigerated warehousing space, with locations in Idaho and five other states. The company's manufacturing facility has 47 employees and its distribution center has 38 employees.

In addition to its exemplary safety and health management system, the plant has an injury and illness case rate well below the industry average. As a SHARP company, Henningsen's manufacturing and distribution facilities are exempt from OSHA programmed inspections until Dec
ember 7, 2008.

SHARP is designed to recognize and provide incentives and support to small employers who implement and continuously improve effective safety and health management systems at their work sites.
