Minneapolis, MN
Aug 11, 2016

Ryan Companies US, Inc. is pleased to announce it has been awarded a Minnesota Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (MNSHARP) Construction certification for the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Shakopee, Minnesota. The facility opened last month and is nearly 1 million square feet. This is the fourth MNSHARP Construction award presented to Ryan, which recognizes major construction companies where 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.

Commissioner Ken Peterson, from the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry, presented the Ryan team with the MNSHARP Construction certification and flag at an award ceremony held at the Amazon facility on August 4, 2016.

“It’s an honor to present Ryan Companies with its fourth MNSHARP Construction certification,” said Ken Peterson, Commissioner, Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. “The Amazon Fulfillment Center is one of only 27 MNSHARP Construction sites ever awarded this certification. It’s a true testament to Ryan’s ongoing dedication to go above and beyond for the health and safety of their workers.”

MNSHARP Construction began in Minnesota in 2007. Only construction projects at least 18 months in duration are eligible for participation in the program.

“The safety of all workers on Ryan jobsites will always be our first concern. We make safety a part of the everyday routine – it’s just how we do things. Safety is part of our culture,” said Scott Beron, Ryan’s Safety Director. “Our number one goal is to send everyone home to their families at the end of every single day.”
