Greensboro, NC, August 11, 2011: North Carolina Department of Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry, along with officials from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) presented its distinguished Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) award to Apple Rock Advertising and Promotions, Inc. Manufacturing Facility in Greensboro, NC.
SHARP is the highest honor OSHA Award presented to small worksites that demonstrate an exemplary commitment to workplace safety and health. Apple Rock is one of only 103 SHARP sites in North Carolina, out of roughly 700,000 businesses. During the Ceremony, Eric Burg, Owner of Apple Rock, thanked the Safety Committee who partnered with OSHA and worked over the past four years to create the safe environment. Patricia Garner stated “As Safety Committee Leader I wanted to do the best work safely, and I did not do this by myself - the whole company got behind this program and enables us to achieve this level of excellence.”
Apple Rock is a manufacturer of Event Marketing Displays and Services with offices in Las Vegas, Europe, Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, Chicago and Boston. Apple Rock has been in business since 1988, and was just recently recognized as one of the Top 300 Business in the South East, and INC500/5000 Company, and a FAST Fifty Company for the third time in the Triad.
Cherie Berry, Commissioner stated that it is very rare to find such a creative growing company that has made such a commitment to SAFETY and HEALTH while it grows responsibly. Apple Rock manufactures trade show exhibits and display graphics out of their Greensboro Plant that are lighter weight than traditional exhibit displays, are sustainable to the Environment and in most cases reduce the cost of shipping and the carbon footprint.
