T.O. Haas Gets Iowa Safety Honor

Nebraska’s T.O. Haas Tire was added to Iowa’s Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Award Program during the grand re-opening ceremony of their Keokuk, Iowa, location.

The program, regulated by OSHA, recognizes small employers who operate an exemplary safety and health management system.  

“We’ve been working hard on reaching SHARP certification status for nearly two years,” said T.O. Hass co-owner and safety director Randy Haas. “We’ve identified hazards in the workplace and corrected them and by sharing information with OSHA officials we’ve significantly reduced job-related injury and illness.”  

“This certification is very important because of what it says about our commitment to employees and customers,” said George Hoellen, T.O. Haas Tire president. “In order to stay in the program, we have to be recertified each year and the bottom line is that each and every day we want employees to go home to their families safe and healthy.”
