NASHVILLE – Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner Burns Phillips announced that Nucor Steel Memphis, Inc. was chosen to receive the SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) award.

Lowry Road in Memphis. “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.
