Innovative Refrigeration Systems is proud to announce that all three of our manufacturing facilities have achieved OSHA’s Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) certification. This certification is awarded to companies that demonstrate exemplary workplace safety and health practices.

“Every employee put forth the effort to perform at the bar that was set for them. Day in and day out, they prioritize safety and quality and set an example worthy of the SHARP title” – Brad Metje, Safety Manager

In 2019, we expanded our operations to two new manufacturing facilities adding 87,500ft2 of space dedicated to constructing our energy-efficient and modular mini penthouse units, and are home to over 40 employees. In addition to our existing SHARP-certified facility, both of our newest facilities were awarded this incredible certification by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry.

At Innovative Refrigeration Systems, we take pride in our commitment to maintaining safe and healthy work environments for all of our employees. All of our manufacturing facilities operate under strict safety guidelines, and we continuously strive to improve our safety procedures and protocols to ensure the well-being of everyone who works in and around our facilities.

“I am proud of our employees for coming together to achieve this honor as quickly as we did. It says a lot about the heart and dedication of our team. Great Job!” – Brennan Renick, Plant Manager

Receiving SHARP certification for all of our manufacturing facilities is a testament to our unwavering dedication to safety and health in the workplace. We are thrilled to have received this recognition and are grateful for the hard work and dedication of our entire team in achieving this certification.

At Innovative Refrigeration Systems, we believe that a safe and healthy workplace is essential for the well-being of our employees and the success of our company. We will continue to uphold the highest safety and health standards in everything we do, and we look forward to sharing more about our commitment to workplace safety in the future.
