When we are all safe, we are more productive, and that helps our customers maximize uptime by keeping their operations moving forward.”
Papé Machinery Construction & Forestry is part of an elite group of businesses that have successfully entered the SHARP program by maintaining exemplary safety and health protocol. Participation in the no-cost program is designed to provide incentives and support to employers to develop, implement and continuously improve safety and health programs at their worksite(s). By taking these proactive measures, businesses can reduce accident costs and ensure compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) regulations.

We commend Papé Machinery Construction & Forestry and its staff for their hard work.”
