Western Metals Recycling’s Salt Lake City, Utah, scrap recycling facility has received the SHARP (Safety & Health Achievement Recognition Program) designation from the Utah Department of Labor. SHARP is an OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) award given to businesses that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to workplace safety and health.

Jim Ramsey, Western Metals Recycling’s (WMR) Salt Lake general manager, and Dennis Schofield, WMR Salt Lake plant manager, accepted the award on behalf of WMR.  

“We could not have achieved SHARP status without the effort and commitment to safety that each of you displays every day. Safety is our core value at Western Metals and the entire team is firmly united behind our goal of zero accidents,” says Schofield.

John Ferriola, Nucor Corp.’s president and COO, says, “Thank you for what you do every day for Western Metals Recycling, and most importantly thank you for doing it safely. Achieving this award is truly an honor. WMR Salt Lake City teammates should be proud to be the first of DJJ’s recycling facilities to earn this prestigious award . . . but they will not be the last. Nothing is more important than safety. Absolutely nothing.”
