ST. PETER, Minn. — Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) was awarded the Minnesota Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (MNSHARP) award for safety excellence. Commissioner Kristin Batson, Department of Labor and Industry presented the Minnesota Security Hospital in St. Peter, Minnesota the respected award.
Safety is more than just a set of rules for AP; it’s a company culture. It represents AP’s commitment to the safety of everyone involved on our projects, and that is why awards such as MNSHARP are not only important to the project and team, but also the community and people who work and inhabit each facility.
“Adolfson & Peterson has shown great leadership providing both time and resources needed to reach this MNSHARP Construction goal,” said Kristin Batson, acting DLI commissioner. “When safety is a company’s top priority, its overall costs go down and productivity goes up. Best of all, fewer people go home with serious injuries.”
Since the inception of the MNSHARP Construction program in 2006, the Minnesota Security Hospital is AP’s fourth project to have received MNSHARP recognition. Previous MNSHARP projects include: Minnesota Correctional Facility – Faribault (2008), Folkestone at the Promenade, Wayzata (2014) and most recently, Sherburne County Government Center Remodel and Expansion (2018). The MNSHARP award recognizes companies whose managers and employees work together to develop safety and health programs that go beyond basic compliance with all applicable OSHA standards and result in immediate and long-term prevention of job-related injuries and illnesses.
