NASHVILLE – Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis announced that Jiffy Steamer Company, LLC in Union City was chosen to receive the SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) award for the fifth consecutive year.
"Jiffy Steamer shows a continued dedication to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace," said Kelly Parks, Occupational Health Consultant for TOSHA, who presented the SHARP award to the company today at the company’s facility located at 4462 Ken-Tenn Highway in Union City. “We are pleased to honor this fine company for their notable safety record.”
The SHARP award, designed for employers with fewer than 250 workers in high-hazard industrial classifications, is one of the state’s highest honors for workplace safety and health. The main incentive for participation in the SHARP award program is the desire by employers to promote a safe and healthy workplace. The program also allows employers to be removed from programmed compliance inspection lists for a period of 12 months.
Jiffy Steamer Company, LLC employs 36 people and is located in Union City, Tennessee. The company has been a worldwide leader in steaming equipment since 1940. They are the world’s oldest and largest manufacturer of garment steamers for personal, travel, industrial and professional use. Jiffy Steamers are sold through its dealer network to 48 countries around the globe.
“Jiffy Steamer is proud to accept this safety award from the State of Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development,” said Clint Joiner, Chief Operating Officer for Jiffy Steamer Company, LLC. “As a family-owned and operated company, we have a strong commitment to provide a safe working environment for our associates.
