DeCrescente Secures OSHA Recertification: One of the Safest Places to Work in NYS!



DeCrescente Distributing Company (DDC) is proud to announce recertification by OSHA as a SHARP site in New York State, holding that distinction every year since 2006.

The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) award is earned by companies that create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace for their employees by identifying and implementing best practices to protect workers, creating a culture that focuses on safety and maintaining a workplace injury rate that is under the national average for the industry.

DDC meets or exceeds all requirements with an injury rate that is approximately half the national rate for our industry. Currently there are only 55 companies in New York State that are SHARP certified and in 2006, DDC was the first beverage distributor in New York State designated as a SHARP site. Today, there are only two other beverage distributors in New York State that share this prestigious award.

At the award presentation, DDC President CJ DeCrescente, said, “This honor is truly meaningful to us.  While efficiency is important, we can’t do it at the expense of the safety of our employees.  Our folks have been extremely receptive in understanding the importance of safety in the workplace and should take great pride in this recognition.”
